    As a wise bartender once told me, get the nigiri and Thai tuna. Lesson: never doubt your bartender.

    Alexandra Mottern · August 9, 2014

    Make reservations before coming here or else expect an hour wait. The Hawaiian rib eye and pan-seared ahi is amazing.

    The entrance is definitely off Congress St, just off the big square.

    I get the ribs. Everytime.

    Scott Zakrajsek · December 21, 2013

    The service is great but the menu is limited and overpriced for what you get.

    Marco Sawyer · December 7, 2013
  • Linda S.

    Ask for the chicken tenders, secret dish not on the menu

    Linda St · December 4, 2013
  • Favecast

    Julia calls the desserts "culinary deliciousnesses." Not sure if delicousnesses is a word but the dessert looks awesome nonetheless. Check out her whole Favecast here!

    Cool atmosphere. Even better location. VERY American, though. In fact, its like a MUCH nicer "Ruby Tuesday's". So, yea... good or bad depending on what you're looking for.
