What a great place to meet people or go with a group of co-workers to socialize. Happy hour is until 7:00pm and drink and appetizer prices are great!! The steak quesadillas is plenty for dinner (even when you share), they also have kobe beef sliders and chicken wings (really good) that are not on the menu (ask they have them). Crab cakes are really good also. Those that like to have a cigar, they have and smoking lounge/humidor roof and sell cigars and many fine bourbon/whiskey/scotch. Highly recommend this place. If you'd like to spend some money - they have wonderful steaks!!!

Had dinner with friends last Saturday evening. Friendly and very attentive hosts and servers. Food was good as well as drinks, but all on the expensive side. The atmosphere was great, the place is spacious and was not very crowded. I assume they are way busier during the week, with lost of business diners. Will consider this restaurant for other visits in the future.

We stopped by Cool River with a group of 8 people and no reservations. They still treated us royally. They seated us all at one large table and our serving staff met our every need. Food and service was GREAT. We will be back when we are in town.
