Good varied menu...great for late night

Better of the Starr chain with good pricing. Low key and good for late night bite. Comfortable diner feel without the 50's vibe.

I was brought here by my friends last night for some food and drinks. I ordered a strawberry twizzler virgin cocktail - which was off the menu and it was delicious. My friends ordered champagne with sugar around the rim (can't remember the name). We then ordered a few plates of food and it was of a very high quality.... More

So I will admit, my wife and I came in here late after a concert at Citizens Bank Park. It was 11:30 and we were tired and hadn't eaten anything since 2pm. So we sat down and all I wanted to drink was a water. I had enough beer at the show and I was thirsty. We got a weird... More

Staff a little inattentive but the food was good and the beer was cold. The Korean BBQ tacos were properly spicy (I like spicy food), even though the menu says not spicy. Decent beer selection and it was served at a proper temp. I was solo and they did me a favor and put me in the back of the... More

I've been here before, but brought a colleague while on business. After a rocky start with an inattentive waitress, we moved to a new section and things got better. There for brunch on a Sunday. Hostess was wonderful, second waitress was very good. Food Highs: Their pancake may be the best I've ever eaten in a restaurant. Denser and thicker... More

This was a neat place to eat. We ordered from the menu and the food was served to share between everyone at our table. The cheesesteak eggrolls were delicious and served with a spicy ketchup. The shrimp pad thai featured jumbo shrimp prepared and chopped - also delicious. I would definitely return here to eat again.

My daughters and I stopped here just before a movie at the Ritz. We all shared the Hummus with Pita. The Pita came warm and the hummus was served with sliced cucumber. Nice! My daughter had a caesar salad without chicken and it was plentiful and nice. My other daughter had the kabobs, which any carnivore will enjoy! Very nice... More

My wife and I were very impressed with the menu as it was quite eclectic. I will not be so inclined to bring my kids there again as it was a bit sophisticated, menu-wise. We had an enjoyable meal but would have preferred a bit more to give the kids. That being said, it is a great date spot for... More

Attractive former diner tricked out for the trendy cocktail crowd. We were there for lunch and had excellent menu choices of burgers, salads and Asian fusion sorts of selections. Lunch entrees ranged from $9-14 which is affordable for this part of town. Easy parking in the immediate area (try across the street under the bridge). Loads of galleries and shops... More

H and I walked in and asked for a table and the Hostess asked if we had Reservations. I was surprised we needed Reservations for a Diner. I was told it was a "Martini Bar". We sat in a booth by the window, nice street view. They have two larger rooms in back they open on weekends. H had a... More
