Very Good

Went to check out their new patio. Service was exceptional, very pleasant, and knowledgeable. Fries were a bit soggy, but everything was tasty and well put together. Will definitely be back soon.

We ordered a starter and main. It's a decent place but for the price you pay it's questionable. Worth trying just get ready to spend! Summary below: Pros: - nice atmosphere, good decor - food was good but nothing special - friendly service Cons: - pricey, for the quantity and quality - service was extremely slow. Maybe because we were... More

Nice neighbourhood for good and reasonably priced restaurants. If you like beer, then this is likely a very good place (I don't drink any). The ambiance inside was very lively (we ate on the patio). Menu is short; we had the beef and the pork and both were average. I've had good experience on that street, and will try more... More

Have heard about this place for years, but never made it for dinner...till now. To start with, the bread was delish... We shared 2 apps that were excellent, and had a hanger steak that was also perfectly prepared... Plus, you can order a Princess Wears Girl Pants IPA beer. What could be better?

This was one of my favorites, but during our last visit the steak was not as good as usual. Until this last experience, I thought this place deserved 5 stars! I would recommend the scallops and pork instead of the steak. Loud, fun with nice selection of beers of draft.

Wine and beer list good. Ordered the prime rib for two based on the recommendation of the waiter. Beef was over a third fat! Fries great. Asparagus good but not enough for two. Too bad! Will not return.

Although the food was good, the atmosphere was very very loud, including the waiter who you could hear from several tables over. We were seated at a table for two, that was within 18" of the tables on both sides of us, making any meaningful conversation impossible. I asked if we could be moved to a larger table so that...
