The food and service was fantastic. The manager went out of his way to make up for our disappointment. The sad part is if we didn't know of this deal, our night would have been fine. The confusion of the deal almost ruined it for the restaurant. If they didn't try to make it right, for sure, we would have never gone back.

The wording on the deal is confusing. It can be very easily misconstrued to read that you spend $75 to get $156 in food. This is only possible if you order the most expensive apps (not during happy hour), the most expensive entrees, and the most expensive desserts. Based on what we ordered, our actual total was around $90, so it only ended up being like a $15 benefit. The server had to call the manager over to explain and he admitted this is a common problem and that he has no control over how your company words the deal.

The service was lacking and the food wasn't what we expected.

The burger.

Every dish that came put was excellent. Yes, I used excellent rather than good. It was an unexpectedly superb experience.
