    We went to dinner here Wednesday night, which happens to be 1/2 price Margaritas all day Wednesdays. The amount of food given for each course could have fed 2-3 people. Everything was delicious and the services was wonderful. We had never been before, and probably wouldn’t have visited if it had not been for this wonderful discount week. The old firehouse glass roll doors really make the room unique in design and it is great for a romantic date night or for a family dinner.
