    All your favorite brunch classics are rolled up into one with the Hangover Helper: eggs, biscuits, gravy, home fries, cheese, and your choice of breakfast meat.

    In a private upstairs dining room, there's a funhouse mirror above the mantel; the ground floor features The Upside-Down Room outfitted with an upside-down table set for a tea party. Read more

    Good times. My boys made it best but the crowd is real nice, party crowd. The girls selling shots on throughout are awesome. Buy the shoys, they are good and tip them

    Brunch is a must with bottomless mimosas and make your own bloody Mary's. The Tex-Mex breakfast burrito is amazing... But make sure you have a reservation!

    It's pretty college bar/club y. Crowded dance floor, sticky floors, and raging hormones. Huge drink that comes in a hat. Good fun if that's your jam!

    solid bar and food spot. But what really set this place apart is the upstairs, with multiple rooms and a full bar, there is enough space to talk and hangout, but still plenty of people to meet

    Ordered the crab-cake sandwich on a whim but was not disappointed. Add a little spicy Tobasco for all you chile enthusiasts and it makes for a great lunch meal.

    Monday night's are lobster night. $12.95 for a steamed lobster, corn on the cob and potatoes. Monday night's are also 1/2 price bottles of wine! Irresistible!

    Get the big ice cream sundae in the humongous martini glass with the sparkler. It's amazing to see and share!

    This is a crazy bar/club, if you want to find a white guy who can't dance or a white girl who is DTF, this is the place to be! Mad Hatter fish bowl alcohol is a good deal

    Men's bathroom is odd. It's like a urinal farm. One outside the stall and 3 inside the stall next to the toilet. But they are nice waterless urinals so the effort is there. Strange organization.

    One of the worst sound systems I've come across, pretty much zero bass and sharp in the treble department. If you like bro-y EDM that barely fills up the room with sound, you'll love this place.
