Happy hour is from 4 - 6:30 p.m. Bartenders and crowd are very friendly. Prices are reasonable and my wife's Crown Royal perfect manhattan was excellent. The black Butte Porter draft beer was delicious as was the meatball slider we had. Nice selection of draft beers. They offer a nice selection of discounted appetizers during happy hour. Would go back... More

Thanks for writing your awsome 4 STAR "Happy Happy Hour Review"!! We advertise "classic cocktails * classic Bartenders" and we are so pleased you enjoyed both, as well as our extensive list of Bar food specials and craft beers.

The service was great, we made it for happy hour but still ended up paying more than we wanted, the food was "ok" nothing to really jump up and down for, but the staff was friendly and it seemed like a good local place to grab a beer and appetizers.

We didn't want to wait for a table so we ordered in the bar. The spicy shrimp was particularly good. Higher quality and more sophisticated than pub food. Friendly server. We would return but try to hit Happy Hour. A little pricey.

A Great Big THANKS for your 4 STAR Review: "Appetizers were Perfect!" My husband obsesses over our appetizers, actually the entire menu....sometimes he'll wake up at 4am and he's come up with a new twist for the spicy shrimp or the ahi poke etc. From your very favorable comments looks like he and our kitchen and serving Staff are on...

Nice Menu, very courteous wait staff. Nice atmosphere but a bit pricey for a blue cheese burger. We would have done better to share a burger and an appetizer.

Came in and were immediately seated. The host suggested the smoked prime rib and despite the fact we had prime rib the night before (at Mogul's) we decided to do that, in addition to getting the escargot and pretzels. The escargot was delightful, and different -- I haven't much seen escargot served with melted cheese and while the cheese obscured... More

Good place for happy hour. Had the angus burger and fries happy hour special and it was very good. My friend tried the fish taco's and said they were terrific. Service was good not great. Worth a stop.

Your awesome 4 STAR Happy Hour review really makes my day! Great Big Thanks!

We always strive for "great service", but sometimes when things get really jamming during... More

We had initially planned on eating at another restaurant, which was unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately for us) closed for the off-season. (I'm afraid this review is delayed, but I'm going off notes made that evening, and the experience is still quite fresh in mind).

In fairness to the restaurant we did not stay long enough to dine. The reason we didn't is that we did not want to sit at a table in the rear of the restaurant and were not allowed to sit anywhere else because tables were "being held" for others who had not yet arrived. We elected to spend our dollars... More

Dear newportkona. Thank you for at least choosing to try dining at our restaurant. I'm a little confused by your comment about tables "being held". We do not take reservations. Were you trying to eat in the Bar or Dining Room? Since we do not take reservations...we have up to three dining rooms available depending on the business to seat... More
