    Off day for the lobster mac? Mine had almost no lobster and the cheese sauce was thick and tasted like precessed cheese food.

    The ridiculously rich lobster mac & cheese will erase those sunny-day longings. Spiked with a tangy bit of Taleggio cheese, and topped with crispy panko bread crumbs, this unique blend is a must try.

    Karaoke here is one of my favorites! Always sooo entertaining. I love that the bartender can sing karaoke and pour drinks at the same time. :-) They now have food, too, though I haven't tried it.
