I'm not a fan of its prices, but it's ideally placed for catching up with friends or on errands. The food and service were excellent, the vibe was relaxed and comfortable, and the portions were decently sized. Although I enjoyed the butter cake, which was buttery and well-seasoned, I wouldn't recommend it. It also had some dryness and mealiness, rather than good taste.

The restaurant was not particularly well-reviewed, and the waiter's attitude may have contributed to its unpretentious reputation. Despite having reserved tables and admiring views, we were disappointed by the food service that didn't match our expectations.

The queues at this restaurant are always so long and the waitstaff is usually around 1.5-2 hours, making our third visit difficult. I highly recommend trying everything on the menu items listed here. The steak was absolutely delicious, and Server Ryan was incredibly helpful in helping us make choices more quickly. Additionally, we were given complimentary appetizers and drinks during our stay, which included free wine and chips.

Despite the many changes and improvements made, this grill is still very cozy and inviting to dine at. The new menu features a large fire pit in the front of the restaurant with steaks, burgers served on sticks, seafood, and sushi options, as well as delirious salad featuring fresh green onions and white meat.

I just had a great experience! The service and food at this place was spotless! This was our first time dining with my wife and daughter, and we highly recommend it!

My first visit to this place was a great experience. The bartenders, Ryan and Joey, were fantastic and super cute! I couldn't have asked for more or any other happy hour options. We had mediocre happy hours with Hess house Chardonnay (my favorite), and then I got the Citrus Brown Butter Salmon with broccolini and brown rice. And my buddy went for burgers that were one of the best, which was my absolute must-have.

Happy hour! We had a fantastic time! The food was amazing, including the jumbo shrimp and sliders, as well as the corn bread. The server was very welcoming and checked us out multiple times.The sushi wasn't on our menu, but it was too expensive (we didn' order live, we wanted to have some live music).

Despite the excellent food served and attentive servers, delicious food, and beautiful views from the patio tables, the restaurant's interior is unappealing and disorganized, with paper, crumbs, or stains staining the floors. The atmosphere is similar to that of Coco'S or Denny' in terms of good taste but not enjoyable.

My son said that the interior was very nice and everyone seemed to enjoy their meal, including the ribs, salads or corn bread. I would definitely come back for another visit. Thank you!

Finished off our evening with appetizers and cocktails at the event in the lantern district, where we were both seated in 30 minutes. The service was uneventful considering it was midday on Saturday and Sunday, with the server being scarce and having to refill their water for 20 minutes before getting up. Our sweet potato fries were delicious.
