    If you have a good seat on the "bar side" for a Fri/Sat dinner, stick around for a great late night!

    Great food, terrible waitress. I understand making a little mistake here and there, but our waitress made mistakes with all three of our orders, was loud, rude and acted like a valley girl, grow up.

    Fire the management, routinely the worst service of any restaurant I've ever been to. Great food but 15 minutes to be acknowledged by waitstaff. Tables are rarely wiped down, feels dirty.

    Do NOT get the strawberry rhubarb pie. I love strawberry rhubarb pie, but it is very disappointing here.
