We shared a sampler appetizer and everything was good. It included zucchini sticks, cheese sticks, chicken fingers, and french fries. Sauces that went with the platter were very good. Although there were a variety of ages there, the majority were younger people in small groups....More

We had a reservation for nine people for 3/23/2017 - my daughter's 18th birthday. I had been excited that they did take reservations during the week. However, that was the only bright spot. When we actually got to the restaurant, there wasn't a reservation. The...More

I try to make a stop here anytime I'm in the RVA. Great food and drinks, cool atmosphere and fast, friendly service. I had the spicy Hawaiian burger with onion rings, YUM! It's not a big place so be prepared to wait at peak times....More
