Great atmosphere and cocktails

Atmosphere is great, although acoustics are a little difficult because of the high tin ceilings. Good cocktail selection and very unique. Always coming up with something new. Food is good as well - love the fish tacos. Great place to meet friends

Went here for the first time and really enjoyed it. Fast service, granted it was a Tuesday night, but it was great. My boyfriend got the Filet with shrimp, which was excellent. I got scallops with risotto and that was awesome. But the best part was the dessert. We are dessert addicts and shared a S'mores calzone. One of the... More

Recommended restaurant by the hotel staff. It did not disappoint. I had a lovely coffee porter with a shrimp and scallop salad. Baby spinach, roasted beets, whole pickled onions (about the size of ping pong ball), feta cheese and balsamic dressing. It was a perfect ratio of all the ingredients and I loved the way the warm shrimp and scallops... More

We've come here occasionally as part of our monthly get togethers -- four 50'ish college roommates. Variety of excellent beers on draft, though two beers are likely to cost you $12-$15. We had a nachos appetizer and each ordered a burger or sandwich of some type. I liked the fish wrap a lot. Fresh and tasty. Attentive, friendly service from... More

Food was average at best, prices were high. Great beer list but tricky pricing on those beers. Be aware you might be paying a lot for only a little. Too bad because the atmosphere seemed nice...bathrooms a little icky though. Would not go back.

A Quaint pub type restaurant. We climbed the stairs and ate up top next to a small window. It had a great view of the Dam with water flowing like the falls. So pretty. They have great food and many brews too. We got their famous Burger with grilled onions and swiss cheese. It was amazing.

In town to visit family and we stopped here for dinner... Despite the crazy weather, the place was packed! I had a Classic Belgian Sour Beer ( my favorite), French onion soup and the Steak Frites for an entree. Everything was well prepared, but a bit salty. Service was slow, but friendly. We will go back and try the Poutine!

We ate here on a cold and rainy day. The pub fare was perfect for the afternoon and the atmosphere was cozy. They have some great food and an interesting selection. Though it is not traditional pub eats, it is remarkably good. The beer selection alone makes this place a must visit.

I really enjoyed the selections on the menu. This was the type of restaurant where your read the menu and you KNOW everything must be good and you want to order everything. I was not disappointed! I tried a little of everyone's food in my party and it was great. No wait on New Year's Eve for us. This place... More
