We found out this was a great place for watching KU Men's Basketball games so we decided to give it a try. The bartender was very friendly and they had game time specials. We split a bucket of Boulevard Wheat beer (a local Kansas City...More

Had trouble finding a place to eat without a line and stopped in this bar for food, instead of returning to the hotel. We sat in the back restaurant area and were pleasantly surprised! The food was well priced and well prepared! I had scallops...More

This close as you get to a dive bar downtown DC. Haven't eaten here but the food didn't look that good to me. Though the small bites were ok. Quite decently priced beer and booze. Nice youngish crowd and a small patio outside. I wouldn't...More

We'd been walking around for ages trying to find somewhere to eat that wasn't fast food but also wasn't super expensive when we were passing this restaurant. My husband had the chicken with vegetables and I had the Calaprese (sp) wrap which our server ensured...More

Well the food was great, and beer has been tasty. Fast service also leaves good impression. But although the restaurant is quite big it has only one restroom and it could be much more attractive.

Just happened to be walking by and decided to have a late lunch (or early dinner) Food was very good. Place is clean and it isn't a smoking tavern so that was a positive in my opinion.

Owner will kick every patron out of the establishment with four minutes left in the national championship game. No warning...will just shut off the game and force everyone to leave immediately at closing time. It doesn't matter that you just spent $40-50 at their business....More

Stopped in for a late lunch. Service was attentive. We both had salads, Caesar and Winter salad. Large size, tasty. Good beer selection. Would go back.

Stopped by with friends to grab a drink and some food today. The beer was good. The food is unimpressive, even for just bar food. Bad chili, lazy flat breads, terrible chicken tenders. Oh and painfully slow service. Glacially slow.
