Super chill and cozy

  • Yes, I would go back!

Ambiance made me feel right at home, complete with board games and comfy chairs. Great, cheerful and friendly staff. Def a place I could become a regular at.

DISAPPOINTED on my birthday

  • No, I would not go back!

I celebrated my 29th birthday here and was really disappointed. I brought in 23 people to her business, yet the owner, besides moving 2 tables together, did not do one thing to make the night special for me or the party. Not even a "happy birthday" from her, never mind a complimentary drink. On the contrary, many of my guests came back from the bar saying, "it takes forever to get a drink here." Someone next to us broke a glass and that was the only time the owner came back to our table. At the time, I pointed to the air conditioning above us that had a constant drip on whoever sat under it. She looked at it yet did not address it in anyway. I actually had to bring the empty glasses and smores trays up to the bar myself throughout the night as they were piling up but were not cleared once by staff. The music was at times slow and "depressing" and it was freezing in there on a 29 degree evening when the atmosphere is supposed to be "cozy" with the fireplace and all. Would not recommend it and will probably not go back.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
