"Review"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I have no issues aside from a bartender that we ran into on Saturday night. His name was Caleb. When I asked for a Crown Apple and Sprite he said “do you really need Crown Apple because it's at the other bar and I really don't feel like going to get it.” I was amazed at his level of laziness and how unwilling he was to satisfy a customer's needs. He was very unprofessional throughout our interaction as well, interjecting himself into my conversation with my fiancé and referenced drinking under age several times.
