    A great rooftop that’s perfect for a relaxing evening outside with friends. Plenty of beers on tap and a great place to watch the game. © 2013 BuzzFeed, Inc

    Kitchen never gets your orders right. Burgers taste like mush. And they are terribly under staffed on Sundays. Blt not toasted and hot beer glasses

    Bartenders are hot and quick.. love the bouncers but worst djs in West Des Moines. No requests. No rock (..even AC/DC) or country dance.... Bar would be perfect with universal dj! From Iowa

    Service sucks, bathrooms are dirty, and they double charge your card. They refunded the chargers so I'm happy about that. Ps- I didn't have to have an open tab for them to add charges after I had
