Ok, so I wasn't dressed up in my Sunday finest. I'd just been for a walk in the park, and thought I stop in and try them out.
It was about 1-1:30 in the afternoon. I was not full or busy.
I went to bar with my back to the open patio (I liked that) and took a menu and waited... and waited... and waited ...4 separate servers AND the bartender AND the hostess walked by me - not running or in a hurry, just walking. My attempts to catch their eye were all ignored.
I left and they didn't even notice.
No idea if the food is any good - wasn't able to try anything.
I did give this place another (actually 2) chance.
Their bloody mary rivals Joe's Garage.
Their wings are not bad.
I did get good service on my 2nd & 3rd visits. And on the 3rd visit, they were pretty busy. So I will chalk up my bad 1st experience to just that. :)
