It's best if you stay for the drinks during happy hour. Staff are nice and willing to please. The food...Stay far away... HORRIBLE! They have specials but the prices aren't posted. Then you find out that you spent $16 for it.... SURPRISE!

The place was empty and the service was still slow. The wings were ok, but my son's burger was fair and the fries were under cooked. Convienence was the best part of the experience.

Menu is limited, typical bar food. Atmosphere was convivial and there is room for a somewhat large group to congregate. Would not seek it out other than for it's convenience when staying at the hotel.

Good cold beer, and a hearty burger cooked as ordered. Fries didn't appear to be real potatoes, but more like that mix that Arby's uses. Good value and quality, and friendly service.
