Just spent an evening here with friends. The late happy hour (starts at 9 pm) was great, we enjoyed food and drinks, and especially Jeff's (our server) help. We will definitely come back next Tuesday!

We are here on a Wednesday night at about 645. The restaurant was busy but not full. We walked in and we're face to face with a family the hostess was bringing back to the front because she had tried to seat them at a table that wasn't yet clean. There was also another couple waiting. She asked for our... More

Most of the time we call and order take-out, but occastionally eat in. Love their Oriental Crispy Chicken Salad. Call with oreder and car driving, 10 min later pull up, a staff person brings it out with the check, home 5 min later. Best, fastest salad in SW Denver area.

Not friendly since the new company took over. Good Menu and great special. Enjoyed meeting friends and sitting at the bar. The bartenders make the place. Used to go 3 times a month, but atmosphere changes make a cut to occasional dropin since friends have gone to other places.

This was MUCH better than the other times we visited! First, it was an excellent value. We got five appetizers and two large beers for about $26, excluding tip, which was plenty for two hungry seniors. Three of the appetizers were new (sweet potato fries, brisket nachos,and crosscut ribs), and they were delicious! Also, our server (Bret or Bert) was... More

My wife and I went for dinner and had a great dining experience with a very friendly waitress Cassi! It was very unique that you could pay on the ipad directly at your table and order too if possible!!

Out running errands and was a bet hungry. Hostess was friendly, bartender was really friendly and attentive. Lots of regulars. I ordered the ribs and they were wonderful. Ordered more to take to my husband.
