    Good for drinks after work. Wait service is horrible though if you're trying to eat. Not enough staff. Eat at the bar instead.

    Have a friend camp out at a table while you get the beers. It's crowded, but once you settle in it's pretty nice.

    Super laid back. Guacamole is amazing, watermelonade is out of this world. A little pricey but the drinks are strong and the good is quality.

    I'm pleasantly surprised that the drink prices here aren't too crazy. I feel like a lot of people know this though because it's crazy here afterwork in the nice weather months. Lock down a swing!

    They have available power outlets on the north side of the building right next to a bunch of comfortable chairs. That combined with the park's free wifi makes for a great spot to do some work.

    You can bring food from outside in here. It usually isn't very crowded. A well kept secret which makes for a much-needed relaxing lunch during the workweek.

    You're better off finding seats and navigating the bar on your own than relying on waitress service.

    It's a beautiful spot for lunch, but it seems really understaffed. You have to wait a while before you can flag down one of the overworked waiters.

    Way overpriced for what you get but if you are single and on the make you can't beat it. Everyone seems to be looking to hook up in this place. Singles paradise.
