Now, I am not much of a steak eater, but for some reason I was craving it, soooooo, when I crave something, I just need to go out and get it, therefore I came here last night with some friends. We started off with some drinks that were kind of outside the box. I had the strawberry cobbler and dirty pearl martini (the olives were stuffed with blue cheese). Booth were very good - but extremely strong. We then moved on to appetizers - we got the shrimp app, which was just so-so. It was not at all what I expected. It was basically two shrimp that laid on top of rice crisp with some type of sauce on top. The shrimp were kind of hard and the rice crispies were very soggy. I would not recommend getting them...especially for $16 (which was a rip off). For dinner I had the skirt steak with the blue butter dipping sauce. Yum Yum Yum!!! Both were amazing! The steak was so tender and well seasoned that you didn't even need any dipping sauce. It was perfect just the way it came out. For sides we split a couple - mac and cheese, creamed spinach and Parmesan fries. The mac and cheese was good - but didn't taste like your typical mac and cheese. It was made with Parmesan so it had a bit of a strong bite to it. The creamed spinach was decent - not as creamy as I was hoping for and the Parmesan fries were very very good. They just melted in your mouth - especially when you dip them into the blue butter :-) For dessert we all shared the chocolate smore - warm fudge brownie, with toasted marshmallow, gramcrackers and vanilla ice cream. Although it was good - I wish we had tried the ice cream cone sampler or cotton candy. We saw them both come out to the table across the way and it looked so fun!!! Next time I come back I'm trying them! Other than the food - the place looked amazing and the music was old school 90's (I just can't believe I called the 90s old school)!!!! The service was nothing special - our waiter was attentive but not friendly. Oh and one more thing - after dinner we were sitting there talking and the manager came up and asked us if we could leave the table since he had people waiting to eat . He then went on to say that he would buy us all a round of drinks since we were being inconvenienced. WOW! I thought that was amazing - most people would tell you to leave or go to the bar - but never offer to buy you a round of drinks. Five stars to the manager who treats his guests right - that alone makes me want to come back.

This place is an awesome choice to hang out. There's outdoor seating when the day is nice. There's a full bar with stools for those who want to grab a quick drink. There are tables for small groups to sit down. There are beer pong tables for college students. All of this is great, but the best part was the "Library" in the back. A large room in the back houses shelves of books along the wall interspersed between plush couches and sofas. I love coming here to just take a load off and relax.
