Amid a backdrop of dungeon walls, life-size movie beasts, and posters of classic horror films, this former haunted house on Mesa's Main Street seemingly has all the trappings for an intriguing monster-themed bar and grill for grownups. Unfortunately, the quality of food has yet to live up to inspired dining space itself. A small menu of hamburgers, oversize sandwiches, and bar snacks is uniformly disappointing and considerably overpriced, especially considering the mass-produced ingredients and often-questionable execution.

WORST PLACE EVER!!!! Showed up just after 6:00 pm, and did not get a table until almost 7:30 pm, after being advised a 45 minute wait. We were sat inside, in the dining room; but it smelled as if they had sat us outside in the middle of everyone smoking. I told a waitress that this was against the law and to close the door or move us, as there were 2 children under 10 also at the table. After serious attitude, even though they were breaking the laws of no smoking, we were offered a table right next to the one we had, but the entire place stunk of cigarettes, so it changed nothing! It then took almost 15 minutes for 3 sodas and 2 waters. We sat there for another 30 minutes after ordering, and saw food just sitting at an empty table. A family of four asked what was the deal with the food, and a waitress then asked if they wanted the food as the people had left. Apparently, there is a serious reason this place is closing. Not only do they not care about the fact that you can taste an ashtray while sitting waiting for your meal, but you also are expected to wait for up to an hour in the stench before you are served, as well. Now, I have managed to get the children fed, but not at this horrible establishment! Whoever the owner is, lord help their patrons at any future establishment; because you will need a blessing from God to survive such a poorly run and maintained "restaurant."
This is one of the very few theme eateries that really is all that. I am devastated to learn that this one-of-a-kind destination will be closing. Yes, it's true the food was whatever. But, so what? It had a great vibe. There was something for all ages.
The service here was the worst service of any bar of grill I have ever been to. They were rude and seemed like they were pushing people through as fast as they could, like it was a haunted house and not a bar and grill like it's supposed to be. The second thing was they did not have a very popular liquor and when I asked what else they had I was given a ton of grief and the bartender could not answer me. I will never return to this place and would not recommend this place to anybody. Not even my worst enemies.
