From the Christmas trees to the hanging corking ornaments I was truly in an winter wonderland. Whitney, waitress was very kind and knowledgeable about the menu and drinks. Our drinks were so festive and flavorful.

Everyone is welcome.

We had our meal and drinks in a small private living room are which was so fun. This place is great for kids-the little ones love the decorations and the car to sit on was a big hit!

There's even a Christmas-themed shot list.

We also had shots from the naught or nice shot list which was a list of strong shots (naughty) and a list of sweeter shots (nice) I thought the naming was cute and we ordered one from each.
