Great neighborhood bv ar & grill

A fine place to drop in, outdoor tables, and nice upstairs with big windows and very nice ambiance. Food was good with excellent service. A very nice experience. A few rules like no backwards caps, no saggy pants, make it fun too!

The drinks menu here and the starter share plates were really great. Main meals less so. Wonderful place for an outside drink and some snacks on a lovely day. Service staff quite helpful

I get the café burger and they always make it to my liking. Staff is nice and friendly. They don't make you feel rushed. There's a bar in the front, so it can get noisy, so if u want quiet, go somewhere else...but it's a great place to go for fun and relaxing.

The visit did not go quite as expected to start off. I had hoped to get the restaurant at about 4:00. Instead, it was almost 7:30 before I got there. I also read on TripAdvisor that the restaurant had Wonton Shrimp. I chose this place specifically for the shrimp because it was Friday during Lent. When I got there, it... More

I've been coming here for a few years and just recently started eating the salads. Wow. The Ultimate Salad is now my go to lunch and dinner - the honey mustard dressing is the best. I also tried the chili for the first time recently - very delicious too!

When there for Buck a shuck and it was great. Place was clean, service good. However we got 2 appetizers. The skins were great, the Calamari gross. So I would perhaps stick to the oysters.

Went on a recent Saturday afternoon and the restaurant was a nice mix of families, young groups, and some locals at the bar watching the games. Our food, burgers and pork sandwich, was excellent, tasty seasonings and good size portion. Menu was typical pub fare and we would go back in a minute to sample a few more items when... More

Dined here on a Thursday with my wife for a late lunch so the restaurant wasn't very busy. Service was excellent and a nice, reasonably priced menu. Also a good selection of draught beers (22) with a high proportion of craft brews. Located in a quiet neighborhood, a couple blocks away from the main drag. The chips served with the... More

I attended an event for work in their loft area above the bar. The food was delicious and the atmosphere fun. I highly recommend it for an event, or for a fun meal with friends.
