Went before a concert. We got there early and they sat us right away. Our waiter, Jordan, was amazing! He was so accommodating and great with recommendations. Drinks were great. The food was delicious! Two of us got the Tuscan chicken at his recommendation. And my husband got fish and chips. All good! Definitely a sports bar vibe and a little dark but that’s what we signed up for!

We were a group of 5 and missed by the servers. So we had to wait 10 minutes to even be acknowledged. It worked out but we were never even given water glasses or plates for appetizers and etc

Very nice before concert spot. Highly recommend a reservation on concert nights. Outside seating was quieter than inside. Food and service were excellent. Great selection on food and drink. Will be our go to spot for preconcert meals at Toyota Music Factory.

The service was not interested in working there. She couldn’t give us any suggestions; said the food was nasty and she doesn’t eat there?? The food took forever to come to the table, and the wait never checked on us. Upon leaving the hostess we’re on their phone not even pay attention and didnt even say goodbye. Sub par, won’t be going back.

Overall, I really enjoyed my dining experience. I’m most satisfied is the accommodation as I requested a table for 2, facing the tv so I can watch the Thursday night football game. I got a table for 4 so my boyfriend and I can both watch the TV. I was very happy with it. The food was also really good, however, the spicy chicken sandwich I got was dry and missed the aioli.

I ordered signature macaroni/chicken dish. I looked nothing by like the photo on website, and the chicken was over cooked. I was very disappointed!

We were told My entree was picked up by another server for a different table. So I waited while my husband ate. The waitress was apologetic and did remove the entree from the ticket but just wasn’t the date night experience of eating together that we had in mind…

Food was great. We had burgers so not very complex but still tasty and cooked appropriately. We were there early on a weekday so a crowd was not an issue. Jordan, our waiter, was knowledgeable, pleasant and attentive. Old Fashions were great! Didn't really know this area so picked this restaurant at random - glad we did...we would go back!

The food is good but some items are way overpriced. The specialty drinks we tried were great. It is way too loud for easy table conversation.

The only issue is our reservation was for 7 and 10 people showed up. The hostess pretty much stated we were SOL. I told them this was not acceptable and they needed to accommodate their customers. They accommodate walk-ins, so it would be a reservation for 7 and three walk-ins. Simple solution, just put the walk-ins next to the reservation for 7. She never thought of that.
