There were pluses and minus to this place:
Plus: beer selection, the waitress was friendly and the calamari
Minuses: the host, the small seating area, the price of food for the quality
If the owner took half as much time trying to improve the quality of his food as he does posting immature responses to reviews on tripadvisor this place may have potential. Unfortunately, it appears that his sour attitude carries into the food. I would go back and order an appetizer at the bar, but for my main course (pretzel crusted chicken) I might as well save my money and go to Boston Market.
