They have a great menu for bar food and happy hour (11am-7pm) - as long as you are sitting at the bar. We had lemon drop martinis ($5.00), fabulous hot seafood dip, seared tuna and buffalo shrimp. Everything was terrific. With Landry's properties you can...More

We were surprised to find they had a really early happy hour when we arrived at 1:00 in the afternoon. We had to sit outside on the patio to enjoy it, but that was perfect! We sat on very comfortable patio furniture with a small...More

We ate out on the deck, which was nice. Good bar food and happy hours specials. The food is very good, and the main menu is excellent but expensive.
