Cool atmosphere and good service. Drinks and food weren't bad, but I thought it was pricey for what it was. But I guess that's most places in Near North Side.

At 4.5 stars on Yelp, I expected better. The food was ok, but not great. We started with an $18 pretzel that came out raw, but they gave us a second cooked one for no additional cost. It was basically a pretzel loaf of bread....More
