First of all, the waiting area…if the place is busy, there is almost no where to wait for your name to be called.  It is a very small area, almost like a hallway because people are trying to come and go from multiple directions through a very narrow pathway.  So, on a busy night, prepare to get cozy with the person next to you while waiting.

I will preface this review by stating that, while $31 may seem like a lot to pay for a meal at a bar & grill, had I not shared the appetizer with others, I would have had enough food left over for a whole other meal.  Now, while the appetizer is definitely not one of the healthiest selections, it sure is good!  The onion rings have a really good flavor to them, and I also really enjoy the fried mac & cheese.  They are little fried triangles with mac & cheese all on the inside.  Now, the ravioli, I wasn’t so impressed with.  First of all, I was really hoping for a pasta on the menu with a cheese or alfredo based sauce.  However, this was the only pasta that I saw on the menu.  I decided to give it a try, and I really wasn’t into it.  It didn’t really have much of a flavor except some overwhelming spice that it seemed like they were trying to overdo in order to make it have some flavor.  There also wasn’t a whole lot of it in the dish for as much as it cost.  I easily finished it all after indulging in some of the appetizer.  I even ate both slices of ‘garlic toast’, which wasn’t very good either.  There wasn’t anything to it…it was something that I could have made without having any culinary creativity or spending any time on.  It was actually quite bland, and had I not read that it was garlic toast, I would have just thought it was plain bread that had been very lightly toasted.

I also wish the server would have been more friendly.  It seemed like they were ‘hot’ then ‘cold’.  At one point they seemed to be in a good mood, and then the next it seemed like things were not going their way or something.

I also was in a non-smoking section but still was able to smell smoke.  I realize that this is a bar & grill, but I thought that it was worth noting.
