The portions are nice and big. Flavor was spot on. Monday night it was easy to find a table in the bar section. Waitress was attentive and very nice. Wish Merced still had Cool Hand Luke's. Nice place to have dinner!!

Ok food. Average service. Nothing to make the place stand out. There is a discount for staying at the hotel next door.

We came here for date night and loved everything. We both really loved the drum menu. They had a lot of drinks we love(Manhattan, Makers Whiskey Sour). The food we ordered was also very delicious. We will be back soon.

Great service especially considering that it was Father's Day. The servers were doing very well at getting the orders out.

When we want to go out for something special, this is one of our favorites. Josh, our waiter and an assistant manager I believe, gave us excellent service. And the food was just fantastic in both taste and quantity. We started with a deep fried union as a starter (can't remember what they call it). My wife ate the salmon... More
