Nice looking place with a good vibe. Room in the back appeared to have live music, but since we were there to converse, opted for a table in the front room. Not a great first impression to have one hostess chewing either gum or food...More

They have some nice drinks on their signature menu. I didn't have any food, just drinks. The signature drinks were good. The rail drinks were pricey. Overall this is a nice place.

The Fed salad with grilled chicken on it was very good. The chicken sandwich had pretty overcooked tough chicken. Overall, a pretty good option for slightly-better-than-normal bar food in the neighborhood.

What a wonderful find. Had cauliflower enough for an army. Outstanding! If I knew I would not have ordered the fish and chips, which was yummy as will. Many beers and special cocktails to choose from. This round only had water. The service was stupendous....More

Visited for drinks on several occasions. The drinks are a bit pricey, but they have a large selection of craft beers and some interesting specialty drinks. Try the cucumber cooler!! The bartender was very friendly despite being very busy. Atmosphere is fun, and they have...More
