    Expensive. If you were not one of the cool kids in school, you probably won't like it here.

    Patio/rooftop cannot be beaten on a nice night. Solid food and good brew selection.

    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

    If you want to see what a casting call for jersey shore looks like this is the place to be. "sweet tapout shirt bro, you must be a cage fighter!". D-Bag central.

    The tuna wrap and sweet potato fries are surprisingly good for bar food.

    Dj Eric. Ignores respectful requests. Rock music not allowed with him. Yet awesome bartenders. I'm torn. Get a new dj wells

    Just got kicked to the back of the bus because I was not supposed to be smoking on the roof next to the "general public"

    Bit of a warehouse, but you can see and be seen. And watch football. And drink beer, so who cares.

    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

    Great spot for a quiet, low-key weekend brunch. Open at 11am, not 10am.

    "Oh, you can get 1 order of the reg. wings for more $ but we're not doing the all you can eat anymore".....despite the fact that several people in our group had ordered the wings and did not get them!
