the restaurant occupancy capacity is well over that figure, but I doubt the seating arrangements would be able to accommodate a party that large. A telephone call to the establishment would answer the question once and for... More

Definitely a jeans place. We saw a few oxford shirts when we were at the bar during happy hour - just office workers unwinding. Definitely no ties to be found! Enjoy!!
