Yelper Lisa W. wrote approvingly of the bar's spaciousness and kid- and pet-friendliness, adding, "There is ping pong, shuffleboard, futpool and foosball to keep you entertained, a fair amount of parking on site and food trucks to service your tummy should be coming online soon. Service was great considering how busy they were."
