Nicely renovated restaurant. The food was fantastic. My husband said the mash potatoes rivaled a high end restaurant we love, the ribeye was good.

The food was good. I had the chicken sandwich with sweet chili gochojung sauce and my person had the gator taco. The service was fast and the bartender was awesome.

I had the fried shrimp and fries basket. The shrimp were very big, definitely a two-bite shrimp. Overall, it was good. The meal came out to around $20 with tip. Would I eat here again? Yeah, I would probably try some of their other food off the menu.
