The food and beer were top notch. You will not be disappointed! I had the fish tacos and I can honestly say I haven't had better in my life! Portions were great, many choices to choose from. Very relaxing rooftop bar.

Really massive establishment with a fantastic heated roof top bar! Excellent beer selection and a great homemade veggie burger. After 11 this place turns into a party spot, so stay upstairs if you want to not be with all the newly minted 21 year olds.
