Catherine C. noted, "Great place. Cheap drinks. I was honestly shocked at my bill. I was there on a Friday from around 9 p.m. to midnight. The music was good. They had a DJ who had a good balance of up-to-date hip-hop and pop. There's a spacious dance room in the back too."

We had to order extra bread with the mussels because the sauce was too delicious to let it go to waste. Overall, such a positive experience."

Jin C. noted, "This fancier date spot took over the old grungy Van Dieman's. The drinks menu is printed on fancy card stock with illustrations and descriptions for each drink, and there are palm tree motifs here and there. This will be a perfect spot for a slightly dressy date."
