“Service is second to none! I am continually impressed with the level of service here. The drinks were very tasty and they were generous with the alcohol. I’m not big on sweet drinks and the bartenders were awesome at accommodating my requests. The food was okay, not fantastic. Dominican food night was particularly good though. The nightly entertainment was well organized and pretty impressive. Overall, we loved our experience there and wish we could have spent longer. “ – Kyle M. 6/17
