The 6 friends eating with me enjoyed their meat choices though no raves. I had a nice beet salad, though the dressing was very bland. They offered a catfish meal with sausage and grits that didn't appeal to me, but I asked for a piece of catfish with my salad, and it was quite good--cornbreaded and perfectly cooked. We arrived...

Once again magnificent recommendation found on TripAdvisor. Honestly it's been a while since we were there, but it left an indelible impression - a good one! It's attached / part of an old auto mechanic type place with great neon sign & other memorabilia. Mismatched tables, chairs & glassware in a dark wood environment made for fun, eclectic experience. Small... More

Each time I return, the food at this amazing dinner only gastro pub just keeps getting better. This time I choose one of the salads. The pickled baby beets were to die for. We also sampled the spaetzle and braised beef pasta special, a blue cheese aioli burger, and the chicken and dumplings. All were simply fantastic. The kitchens ability... More

Here you will find a small, shared, boisterous yet intimate dining experience. It is my local neighborhood pub and I love it dearly. I usually can squeeze into a bar seat to order my favorite- Mac N Cheese or goat cheese app. They only take reservations for parties of 6 or more. The line starts to form by 6. The... More

From the outside, you'd barely even notice this restaurant. Looks like a small dive bar or something, next to auto fixing shops. But don't let that stop you, take the plunge. As other reviewers have mentioned, you'll be amazed. This is a truly culinary gem. We live in Carlsbad, and I had no idea this was so close. Wait staff... More

A local recommended the brussel sprouts that were in season...what a treat. Fun bar and restaurant scene that is off the beaten path.

The trend these days is to open a noticeably eclectic place, sprinkle mostly recognizable items with catchy new names on the menu and charge almost double for the "farm to table" goodness. At first glance you might think this is one of those places, but I'm here to tell you what sets them apart from the posers (of which quite... More

Love this unique place. It's a hole in the wall place that is totally surprising inside. Retro menus and decor. The food is great. I love the shrimp and grits. The burgers are also awesome. Not a fan if the pulled pork sandwich, it seems dry to me. Wine and beer selection is great. Atmosphere is lively and perfect for... More

From the appearance of the restaurant, we weren't sure what to expect. An array of people from young to older dressed down or dressed nicely. Random decoration. But when the menus arrived, (2 vinyl albums bound with the menu inside) we knew we were in for a surprise. Unbelievable food. We got the catfish with grits and sausage, mac and... More
