Went with my husband a few times for concerts, I wasn't too happy about people not respecting the singers, they kept on talking loud, but the music is always good. Been back just to have a drink and dance, if you are out an about any weekend night, stop by. It has a nice crowd.

We came here to watch the Super Bowl over dinner and the place was empty! Only four other couples were there. The food was pretty good. We got the artichoke spinach dip. Order this if you want a large appetizer. You'll get a lot of food. My Cobb salad was decent. It had a lot of toppings and the greens... More

We had been past the building several time only to think it was closed but found out the entrance is on the back where the parking lot is. Food was great, server was fun. Large dance... More

Poor management. Through their manager, I arranged a birthday party with 22 people and she arranged for a private dance instructor for us. He showed up an hour late, too late for us to have our private lessons. Meanwhile, manager wouldn't come out of her office to speak with me. I asked for her five times .. she actually left... More

We were in town for a wedding. The wedding party decided to head here after the reception. We weren't sure what to think but were pleasantly surprised! Wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff. We had a few drinks and danced a little bit.
