    Had to wait ~45min past our reservation for a table, but the food was delicious! Great sushi, spinach artichoke dip, and pork chop. They ran out of the ribs so they must be amazing.

    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.
