My appetizer was sort of a nondescript mush - very disappointing! My sandwich was not at all remarkable, especially for the price. The service was very slow, even though they weren't that busy. The prices were high!

Walked to the Bellweather for drinks and appetizers before going to see Hamilton. Cool spot with a minimalist, modern vibe. Sat at the bar. Service excellent with eclectic menu.

Went over after we just arrived. It was around 9pm when we went and it was easy to get a table. We had the sliders with fries and they were well made.

Normally sliders and a martini mark the end of a perfect day, even if things went badly along the way. But the sliders were overcooked. Good, but not great. Very friendly staff, however.

Screwdriver would have tasted much better if they used fresh squeezed orange juice. Decor gave the place a weird vibe- did not flow the best.
