Nice beer selection and a decent bar scene. Not too expensive. However, food wasn't so great. And I wish I had sat at the bar instead of a table - the waitress kept on forgetting about actually serving her tables...

I went to visit my friend to bring in the New Year. We ate at various places but on my last night there, I couldn't make up my mind as far as what to eat. I pulled up my Yelp app on my tablet and he chose this spot because it was around the corner from where he lived. We... More

My hubby and I went to Wash St Ale House on New Years and they were serving their Brunch menu. Nice Bloody Mary Bar! We both had the steak and eggs with toast to soak up the previous evenings good time. This is a typical Gastropoda with a typical bar atmosphere. There was a nice seating area in the back... More

Just visited for a business lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the food. Had the blueberry iced tea which was quite refreshing, house salad and the turkey focaccia sandwich. The house salad dressing was delicious and the fries had a lovely bbq-esque seasoning which was quite tasty. the turkey sandwich itself was bland and left much to be desired. The... More

Bartenders were to busy watching the game to be attentive to waiting guest. Not having a hostess and relying on the bartenders to seat your customers was not a good choice. Waitress was nice and attentive once we finally were seated.

Had a pretty good salad with steak. Some more fresh vegetables in the salad would have been preferable.
