Great Happy Hour!

stopped in for a quick drink - stayed at 21c across the road. Happy hour was hard to beat, 5$ cocktails can't complain!

It took me forget to make it here, and it's OK. Granted, it was for lunch but it's been inconsistent since I've been back. I'd be curious about dinner but I'm wary.

Came here for a quaint dinner and drinks with a business associate. I happen to love Bourbon and this was the right place. Must have close to a hundred different kinds, including the cult classic Pappy Van Winkle (which does live up to the hype). The appetizers are great- we shared the deviled eggs. Steaks didn't disappoint. One of the... More

We are here at the suggestion of a local. Really nice atmosphere with dark woods, leather, etc. Our waiter did a fine job. The wine list is pretty limited as is the menu (they had just changed the menu per our waiter). We had the mussels as a starter and were disappointed; they were undercooked and very lemony. We shared... More

Had to try the "Elvis on Horseback" -- peanut butter stuffed dates wrapped in bacon with a banana bourbon sauce, and was not disappointed. Could be a bit pricey for dinner, but the lunch menu was reasonable with pretty good selection. Friendly staff. Great for a business or pleasure lunch without a crowd.

Just what I look for in a bar- beautiful old world atmosphere, authentic and local patrons, and most importantly, a friendly and capable staff. Loved the oversided ice cubes and tall cocktail glasses. Nice touch that made this bar memorable.

We stopped in for drinks late one evening and an early dinner the following day. Lot of dark wood and nice lighting. We just had the burger for dinner but there were many interesting choices on the menu. The cheesy grits were delicious.

American food with a flair. Fun place for drinks and appetizers. Beautiful old space. They also did a good job for my office Christmas party.

I was with a group of 15 on a Saturday night. We had a reservation at 7:30 and were seated with no wait. The service was prompt - we told our server we had tickets to a show and needed to finish within 2 hours of being seated. Our servers were very attentive and all our meals came out correct... More
