We stopped by for a quick bite and ordered Kobe sliders to share with mussels. The burgers were on nicely toasted buns with caramelized onions..delicious. They can be ordered as 3 or 4 burgers, helpful when sharing. The mussels were served in a savory, fresh broth. A chunk of crusty bread to enjoy some of the broth would have made... More

This place used to be a good spot to grab a beer and a snack..end of story. Then you go there a few times and realize they really don't know what they are doing..you give them another chance and it all goes down hill from there..It really is that bad. Watched extreme version of sanitation issues from the "chef" and... More

This "tavern" has so much potential and good things about it that it’s sad to write this review. I have never had such poor service in my life and all we ordered was beer. I have been here multiple times trying to give this place a chance I love the location and the food has always been great. The waitress/waiters... More

My mother and I went tonight and I would have to say it was pretty bad. We had the bacon as an app. It is literally a cup of fried bacon (odd but hey it's bacon) I had a "Kobe" burger (we all know it's not Kobe) which wasn't bad but it was pretty small. the fries were not terrible.... More

PLEASE save yourself the trouble, aggravation, and frustration...just don't eat here. Treated rudely from the moment we entered, were told 15-20 min wait, turned out to be 40+. After finally being seated, we were ignored for another 15 mins no menus or water while other parties were seated after us and provided menus and water immediately. We finally got up... More

Great selection of beers and better than average pub food at very reasonable prices. I had a Kobe burger with their shoestring fries and was pleasantly surprised. They have about ten drafts which rotate and change, and over 100 microbrews in bottles and cans. Friendly staff and locals.

Food is cooked to order. We had love sliders, mac n cheese and fries. I had a glass of wine. my friend had two beers. We... More

I work nearby, and followed as this place was being built. I walked in one day after seeing the increased cars in the lot. Low and behold they had opened about 45 minutes later. I come here often. The bartenders are great. I love the burgers, wings, and mac & cheese. I do wish they had a bigger variety of... More
