Food is good if somewhat generic but live music, great staff, and good location make it a worthwhile to visit if in the Railyard District. Go when you can sit outside on the patio, listen to a live band, and savor this great city.

Early in the day we came for the afternoon Hogan and Moss music which was Great! The bartender was attentive, the people were friendly and there were good craft beers to select from. The temperature was way too warm, but it could have been that the place was crowded and therefore, the beer seemed not as cold as it should... More

This was not out first choice but we saw the big sign as we walked down the street and what a gem it was. Everyone was so pleasant from the host to the waitress and the guy who brought our food. The prices were unbelievable for the portions we received. I loved Santa Fe and l definitely loved this place.... More

Went to hear the live bands and hopefully dance. Unfortunately, the dance floor was very small. Bands were great. Food was great. Our group had a wonderful time. Staff will all come out and sing "Happy Birthday" to you (we witnessed the off joyous, key singing.) No cover for the bands, which usually start at 8, but check their website.... More

Delicious food. Great service. We went for dinner. I had The Mother of All Chili Cheeseburgers. My wife had chicken fajitas. The chili cheeseburger was big, juicy and stuffed with all sorts of good things: chili, cheese, bacon, tomatoes and beef. It came with truffle fries. They have a great selection of beers on draught. Many I had never tried.... More

Good food and fun atmosphere. Very laid back. Good selection of food. I did feel that the wait staff was not on their toes the whole time. But went back another time and did encounter very good service... so it was a reflection of the server and not the restaurant. Overall good. Live music, good food and beer!
