Happy Hour Dinner

The Happy Hour in the bar is plenty good for dinner. The menu is quite diverse and the food is as good as the regular restaurant and a fraction of the price. The seating is limited, so you have to sit at the big table unless you can get a small two seater along the side. We had the Flatbread... read more

Went there for dinner but had no reservations & the wait was too long, so we sat in the bar area. We had some drinks and we could order the entire menu which was good. The burger & flatbread were incredible. The bare area was nice but maybe a bit loud. Overall everything was good & servers were friendly.

The place is good, but not great. However the high prices set your expectations, and unfortunately wind up only highlighting the lack of greatness. Our dessert was good though. Not much else stood out.

The atmosphere is high end w/out the attitude or prices. It is a great place to go with the girls. We had flat breads, which were excellent.

What a nice experience. When you grow bored of "Gastro Pubs" who try to out-do themselves with weirdness like glazed octopus or truffle fries try Bru Grill for their creative and delicious dishes. Start with the chef selected cheese platter (served on a slate) or wings. Don't expect your wings to be huge and slathered in over garlicky sauce, rather... More

Rang the New Year here for the 2nd time. Last year, I feel that we got more for our money. This past experience, they had forgotten about the Goody Bag we were supposed to all get. Also, the lights were turned on my 12:30 a.m. It was those little things that made me give it a score of 4 versus... More

Can't beat the home-like atmosphere in this upscale bar-lounge with great happy hour prices. Came in from out of state with computer looking for hookup. Turned away at nearby restaurant but here, the host, sporting an elegant mustache, greeted me like an old friend, welcomed my work ethic, found me a plug, got me a chair that fit the low... More

We visited early evening whilst on holiday with family who live in the area. My initial reaction, when told we were going to a bar was a lack of enthusiasm. However, on arrival I realised we were in for an experience. We were in the bar area rather than the restaurant. We had a round of taster beers (from a... More

I had only been here for happy hours, which is really nice. My husband and I couldn't find a place at Spectrum without a long wait so we decided to try this place out for dinner. I have to say we were very pleasantly surprised. We loved our meals and the mac n cheese is awesome!! I had some beer... More
