We live locally. Been here a few times. Always expect ease. Love the space, it is exceptional. Great waitstaff. Vast beer menu. Food a challenge. Ordered falaffal. Could have fired them from a cannon and done damage! The dish was overwhelmed with side items. Sad. Stopping trying.

This was my first time here. The beer selection was great, the staff very friendly and I thought the food was very good.

I guess I should thank the flatbread pizza company for closing at 9 the other night, otherwise we would not have discovered this place. It is one of the best places I have ever been out to eat at, although I am not much of a beer drinker,this place has a extensive list. Although I am sure you could get... More

We dined here recently with friends and enjoyed our evening. The building is an old brick mill overlooking the PowWow river. There are tables upstairs and downstairs overlooking the river, but we sat in a booth on the side. The atmosphere is dark wood and brick. There was a nice variety on the menu to choose from. I enjoyed several... More

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.
