HIR Gastro Lounge

Mediterranean Infused Restaurant


We received this wonderful email, and we would like to thank all of the golfers for a wonderful evening. We really enjoyed your company, but most of all we enjoyed your sing along with the performer. HIR represents making new memories with loved ones and connecting. Your group did that, and also allowed the staff to share those memories with you.
Thank you
HIR Gastro Lounge

The Email:

I just wanted to send a note of thanks for accommodating my group on Saturday night. Of course I'm referring to the group of 14 loud men on your back patio. To say we enjoyed ourselves would be an understatement. Your food and hospitality were outstanding. The atmosphere on your patio, with Tom out there playing some great tunes, helped to create one of the most memorable nights our golf group has had in many years of traveling together. Please forward this to Mr. Edwards and let him know that he played perfectly to his audience.

Again, thank you for the great food and service. Sorry if we got a little too rowdy! We hope to come back at some point in the future.
