I predict the place lasts until around February. Good luck to the new owners. I wish them well.

Maybe because they specialize in CRAFT beers. Why would you bother going here if you're only going to drink a Miller lite? They have 60 to 70 different craft brews on tap, some of which are well worth trying.
Really, Craft beers? Have a Sam Adams and think your sophisticated? People go out to drink to release tension and stress or screw around or just get plastered. Have a vodka and kool-aid . That's crafted and you will get smashed. Please.

Did you ever think maybe she likes Miller Lite and that's why she wanted one? According to your twisted logic, when a person goes to Red Lobster they have to order fish.

This place is very underwhelming. They are definitely NOT "Fine Dining" as they claim to be but they like to charge "Fine Dining Prices". Poor Service and Bad Food! THIS PLACE WILL BE SHUTDOWN IN 1 TO 2 YEARS!

Tribes also has Great Service and in additon to that service they have some of the best food, and added ingredient of energy and alot of fun. P.S. I happen to know that Tribes lines are cleaned on a regular basis.

Good beer selection.
Bar tender would not give a sample on a $9 draft. What if it tasted like shit!
High end prices for Bar food.
If I'm going to pay $26 bucks for a steak I'm going to go to Mr. Bennys
Stay away!!

We went yesterday for lunch and sampled a few beers each. The selection was great, the food was also great. I was able to try the pulled pork, fish and chips and the roast beef sandwich; all were perfect and juicy.
None of us felt that the prices were high, especially for the amount of food we received. I love that they offer "small plates" on their menu and will definitely be going back.

Also, the filet dinner was priced at 23.00 I believe. I have been to mr Benny's and have never seen a filet for that price. We pay at LEAST 50.00 per person when going there; with one drink each.

Stopped in with my wife to have a little dinner and sit outon the patio. We had not realized that there has been a change of ownership. We will not be back.
When we walked in we noticed that there were a number of empty tables on the patio, but were told that there was a 20 min wait if we wanted to sit outside. Seemed a little strange but I told them I would be waiting by the outside bar. I ordered 2 beers and proceeded to sit at one of the tables on the patio. There was a couple seated about 10 feet from our table that was getting served, but rules are rules, I guess I would wait. After 45 min this couple left and the table sat unattended for another 15 minutes. Still no on came to seat us.
I walked up to the hostess stand to inquire about my seating and was told that there was still one party ahead of me.
I asked if I could order take out and eat in the bar. To my surprise I was told yes, no problem. ATTN MANAGEMENT!!! THIS DOES NOT MAKE SENSE! I told the hostess that I have been waiting for over an hour and if I knew it was going to be that long I would have either sat inside(no waiting) or gone somewhere else.
When I inquired about the table that had been served and was now empty, the hostess said that it should not have happened and the waiter must of made a mistake -----WOW
If it was not for the bartender I would have left hungry and thirsty. He obliged me by taking my shortened order- I just wanted to eat and leave. skip the apps, skip the soup, etc. The wife and I ordered at the bar and in about 10 minites the food was brought to our table....Still kind of perplexed how management is running this place. I paid full price, ordered my food at the bar, did not get any fresh bread, had to go to bar to get my drinks, bussed my own table when we were done (felt obligated, and really not a big deal) went to the bar and paid my bill, left the bar tender the tip that HE earned not one of the waiters or waitresses
When I was paying my bill I ran into another couple who was going through the same treatment.
Food was good, not great, and not worth waiting for, If you do go there just skip the hostess and go to the outside bar and order.

Ask the muscle head tool with guido hair that works there why he wears an ankle bracelet. Don't let your woman talk back to him.
