Excellent food and great atmosphere and staff. They have almost any type of alcohol you can imagine. The food might take a little longer to get you that usual but it's well worth the wait. It's also a little pricey but overall well worth it. Not a good choice for kids

Our lunch was excellent. Our virgin bloody Mary's were seasoned just right. The seared tuna was very tasty, just a little over cooked.All of the soups were excellent.

Love the creative lunch options here ! Salads and vegetarian options abound and the margaritas in various flavors are great too!

It's a wine bar, a lounge and fancy food restaurant. The décor is great. Our server was great, but way overworked with too many tables, no help. I'm surprised it was crowded on a weeknight, in off season for a resort town. The hostess did not help out. No Walleye, salmon or other seafood on a weeknight at 6:00 pm,... More

Very busy. Pretty good menu with several unique dishes that are very well presented. Top shelf bar with many specialty drinks. A little pricier than I would like but a great place when you want something a little different.

My son and I went there for dinner during our annual golf trip. I ordered a premium bottle of Malbec to go with my Ribeye. The waitress brought out the cheaper bottle from the same vineyard and I had to show her the difference between the two selections. My son ordered the Prime Ravioli and I ordered the ribeye. He...

Walked in and the place had a musty smell to it. Not really what I expected. Food was pretty good, but $13 for a burger is overpriced for 1/4 of food service meat. Drink selection was excellent as well as the service. Decor is funky but cool.

Stopped in about 3:30 PM on a Saturday. Waited over 10 minutes at the bar while three people behind the bar ignored us. Two of the three were idle and the bartender was making mojitos. She filled them from one shaker...one glass was filled approximately half full and the other only a third...her solution was to fill both with soda... More
