Ordered drinks. Order was misplaced and it took over 30 minutes to get drinks. Service was also very slow. Food was just ok nothing to rave about. To many other choices in area to go back and eat there again.

The time of day you go to eat correlates with the quality of the food. Also, for the vegetarians- the been dip contains lard and there's no mention of it. The Bartenders agree good and the service is usually positive.
