Great place to get local or regional craft beers. The food if pretty good too. The menu is a full menu with lunch and dinner. It's not a 2 for for 20 type of place. If you want a nice dinner in an atmosphere that isn't full of waiters singing happy birthday to every other customers this is the place.

We dined here on a Monday evening with our young boys (4 and 7). The restaurant has a large aquarium at the back which helped to entertain the boys. The food was excellent and so was the service. It's quite a large restaurant, the storefront is a bit deceiving that way.

My family and I ate here on Mother's Day for brunch. It was excellent. The staff was pleasant and attentive. The food was warm and delicious. The options were plenty and everyone enjoyed this meal immensely. I also visited last weekend late in the evening and caught the bar scene. It was busy but not packed. The drink menu is... More

I find it is usually very loud and crowded and the service for dinner has been average to bad. For example, they made a grilled cheese with some weird kind of doughy wrap that was awful and I asked the next time we went in if I could just get regular bread for a grilled cheese. The waitress said "no".... More

Had a nice visit, would not return with kids, nothing on the dinner menu that served them. We did make due. Food and service was great. Pricy dinner menu. Burgers $9-10 and other dinners $12-30

Very beautiful bar with extremely knowledgeable bartenders. We ordered Drambuies on the rocks and were offered doubles with the advice they would save us $$ if we thought we would order two. Great atmosphere and food menu looks like a chef is there.. Would definitely go back!

My husband and me enjoy a date night on Tuesday at Old City Hall for half off glass of wine night. They have great appetizer and sandwiches.
