Awesome food this April evening as we enjoyed a cover band. Buffalo Cauliflower and Brussels Sprout appetizers were plentiful AND flavorful! Enjoyed the beet salad, Brussels sprout salad and the Buddha bowl. Can’t say enough good things about about the flavor and the ambiance!

7:30 pm, but try to get there early to grab a seat at the bar. That's the best spot for a show. Usually no line and no cover.
