    They bring out delicious hummus and some kind of rice cracker while you look over your menu. Try the filet mignon sandwich! Incredible flavorJust make sure you reiterate your cooking temp preference.

    make sure to go during happy hour...the burgers and sandwiches are half price...and you really don't wanna pay $12 for one of thier "hand pressed" angus burgers. The food is wildly overpriced, but the Read more

    Can't say much about the food, I didn't eat. The beer selection is nice and I only sat at Daniel's bar, so all I can say about the service is that it is AWESOME! Knowledgeable dude and g

    I ordered the salmon steak rare and it was cooked to perfection, I can't recommend it enough. I've already left a tip about the always stellar service here but it's worth repeating again.

    Bartenders cool, servers cool, hostesses are awful. Didn't greet me, didn't thank me on the way out. When you are at the front desk, you are the face of the business. Need to be friendlier...

    Will continue to come back here for the Lobster BLT every once in awhile but the food and service is mediocre. Definitely can tell everything here is not fresh despite what their menu says.

    Our service was excellent, very attentive. We went on an uncrowded Thurs. Grilled Pear salad was fresh & good mix, but lemon dressing was ov

    All the servers seemed friendly except ours. He was rude. I got the duck enchiladas. They were spicy but pretty good.

    Serving sizes are reasonable (I can actually finish the whole thing!). The mushroom quesadilla is excellent!

    The service and food are mediocre. The entire restaurant is a hodge podge of decorative themes and it can become very crowded.

    Zack, the bartender, is great and very personable... will definitely visit again next time I'm in town :)

    Get the roasted potato medley. Gold, sweet, and purple potatoes roasted and salted to perfection

    Why is this place so popular? Over-rated, service is slow, and all three in my party did not enjoy our meals. I won't be back.

    The service was ok. The burger was good, I would suggest splitting it and get the roasted potatoes.

    Monkey Way Burger is delicious. The goat cheese sets it off! Very flavorful.

    The skinny margarita is awesome! Garlic shrimp appetizers is great too

    Skip the grilled salmon. Dill sauce is terrible and fish is overcooked and way too dry. Not worth $20.
