  • Melania SpagnoliFood arrived 1 hour and a half after we placed the order and it was quite blend, definitely nothing special. Portions were generous though, and the staff was very nice.

  • Kelly J.This place was recommended as a Packer friendly bar, I do NOT recommend this place, bar was dirty & sketchy clientele & no Packer game, it was not broadcasted on their channels available that day.

    33333 by Rachel C.

  • Jeri L.Bartender suggested live music in back room but waiter informed us that anywhere we stood "would be in their way" and the wait for a table was 1 1/2 hour. Very small bar.
