    You made it in! Order a big drink and a burger, some extra fries, something with an egg. Now, who’s here we recognize from Page Six?

    The food was delicious, but could never make up for the aweful service. Never returning.

    Overpriced and a bit silly. That said, they make a mean old fashioned and the space is warm and cozy.

    Don't expect to be seated within an hour of your scheduled reservation, avoid making timely plans afterward.

    If you get this tip before you sit down -- do yourself (your wallet and your taste buds) a favor and leave. The food is sub-par and expensive, the ambiance is extremely loud.
