Not a cheap place to eat, but the value is good considering the quality. Restaurant makes a point of trying to source things locally, including from its own farm. The drinks menu is good - the cider cocktail that includes cider from their own farm...More

The menu covers a good selection home farm-to-table favorites with a home-style comfort-food flavor. The beers and spirits pair well with the heavy entrees they offer and the atmosphere is as you’d expect. Overall a nice experience that I’d recommend.

Stopped here as in the area as my wife had a gig nearby. Service was terrific as we were time pressed and they made it work for us. Quality of food was high. Enjoyed sitting by the window for the street-scene. Definitely worth a visit.

We come from a town that is very supportive of the farm to table movement and it was so refreshing to find a restaurant right in the heart of the city that could rival the dishes we know so well from home. The drinks are...More
