Walked around Mill Street and saw the upper deck street side. Everything about our entrance to the lower level were inviting. It was clean and polished; the upstairs was accessible by stairs or elevator. The outside, upper seating was spacious and clean. Happy hour greater us with $4 beers and 20 plus small plate happy hour dishes. Very enjoyable.

The food was ok. Nothing particularly fascinating to write home about. What makes this place stand out is its' location. Sitting out on the balcony looking over Mill is really a wonderful experience (of course, not during the Summer)! I do look forward to going back.

We went before a show and were very happy with our food and service. We got great happy hour deals on drinks. Great beers on tap. The food was great and ready pretty quickly. Our waitress was very helpful and on top of things. The garlic fries are still my favorite of all time. This was the first time I... More

We were looking for a quiet and interesting restaurant to enjoy lunch. This was a challenge in this area as most of them played loud harsh background music. This two storey restaurant had a very interesting décor. Greeted by a helpful hostess and taken to an upstairs table. The noise level was borderline and the restaurant was not to cold... More

Went there with family for lunch. Sat down and ordered food and drinks. When our waiter, Adam, brought our water, ALL 3 glasses were dirty with "lip prints" on them. First, I could not believe it and thought it was maybe in the glass. Tried to wipe it with my napkin, which left a sharp, clean mark on the rim... More

Stopped during a busy time, but they got us a table for five immediately! Great unique menu including some nice small plate options. They also have some great home brews! No complaints on the items I ordered like yellow fin tuna and bratwurst slider, but I didn't care much for the garlic fries, and I love garlic, who knows, maybe... More

The food and atmosphere at this restaurant is top notch. My wife raves about the fish tacos. Everyone enjoyed their meal immensely.

Seven years ago I promised myself I would not return to this restaurant. However, I received a gift certificate and took my daughter to lunch. What a change in service! Nathan, our server, from arriving to departing, was the most pleasant and even charming person. He paid attention without hovering. He made suggestions that were right on the money. I... More

I love going here, been here about 5 times, whenever we are in town. It is a tad costly, but you are also paying for ambience, the pub, and location.
