    Great patio in the summer but terrible service year round. Avoid the open mic comedy nights.

    The only time it's worth it to come here is when they are playing hardcore ambient and African drum-step.

    Treats bands like meat. Be warned if you're thinking of playing here. They'll cram 10 bands in one night resulting in nowhere to sit. Service is horrible too, pretty much have to serve yourself.

    Stick to burgers or anything fried > pastas and pad Thai a little risky.

    Food came, and was amazing. But don't come here unless you have a few hours to chill, and aren't starving.

    If you see an artist/band at this venue, you must go early & get a front seat b/c. very narrow stage. If you aren't at front, it's very hard to see the stage.
