Great drinks, great service and neighborhood, friendly atmosphere. Happy hour appetizers are huge and wonderful... from salads to truffle French fries.

Service made this a painful experience. Grungy atmosphere... waitress was not helpful or attentive. Did not see much of her at all. Mac n cheese oily. Other appetizers we orders were just edible...nothing special. We did not order any further.

Kind of, the food is a bit out of the box for kids. There were kids there, however the menu was pretty strange for a kid. The guy I was with was super picky and had a burger as that was all he recognized as edible.
