    On Monday nights, martinis drop to $4. The bar also does a martini tour, so if you try them all (not in one night), you earn a free martini glass. Read more

    On Monday and Tuesday nights there is only one person working. If its busy, you can't expect table service.. Please don't be so quick to bad mouth a business, be more observant.. Thanks!

    We actually had great service here tonight, and got to see the end of The High Crest's set. Crab cakes are definitely a must-try

    Sounds like Brett g is a bitch so the bartenders picked up on his attitude. It was busy as hell, try knowing the names of bartenders n being polite, asshole.

    When a patron orders a gin martini, the bartender should not assume the patron wants it dirty. Only make it dirty when asked...

    Horrible service. Took like 20 minutes just to get noticed that we were there and we had to move to the bar to get service. Ran out of a special. Overall -- SUCKS.
