We are outside under the heaters. Sun was out so we had the umbrellas as well. I must say Covid wise we felt very safe.. the tables were very far apart and the servers all wore masks properly. The food as always was delicious.

Everything was good except for the fact that my first drink was “Moxie sized” and the server never confirmed whether I wanted my subsequent drinks to be upgraded and simply added it to my bill. When I questioned the server on the bill she stated that she just assumed that because my first drink was upsized that I wanted the others to be up-sized. I didn’t want to make a scene because, I was with friends but they is unethical. Now I’m all for up-selling, as I’m well aware that the minimum wage for servers is lower than the average and this is how they make their money, however there should always be a confirmation of the alcohol content of a drink each time the customer places an order. This is not only for ethical , but for health and safety reasons.

They are set up very well to maintain social distancing. Each table had plexiglass in between and seats were spaced apart.
If you chose to sit on patio, it was heated and again every other table was used to maintain the distance and all staff wore their masks on at all times.

My party felt comfortable dining there. Food was delicious, we all cleared our plates! No room for dessert but there were some good choices!

Usually pretty good but last time was disappointing. The only good thing was they waived the price of the meal because it took over an hour but the food itself was not that great this time.

When doing the reservations, it asked indoor or outdoor and we selected indoor and they gave us outdoor and we came on time. Food items were missing that we had to ask our waiter to bring them. I would not go back to this location as this was the second time this happened.

After we got seated our waitress got us some water and we sat for about 15 to 20 minutes in the hot sun there was a table next to us that had gotten up and left no one came over to take away the dirty dishes or wiped and clean the tables we wanted to move to a spot that had less sun and the mist was also dripping water on a friend of mine... again we waited for about 15 to 20 minutes and no one came over so we left. It wasn’t very busy either...
