Atrias is a great place to go... If it isn't busy. Its very hard to get a drink at either side of the bar during Pirates games or event nights. The food is o.k. and for food that is just o.k. it is pricey. The upside is if you go on a normal night service isn't bad and it's easier to get a drink. ... More

I went here on a Saturday night. Overall, it was a great experience. Entertainment was amazing.
