After a long day on the road, this was a welcome, casual and relaxing place for dinner. Coming from NYC, this foodie was glad to find space at the end of the bar. Had a fabulous squash soup with candied walnuts and cranberries. It had a little spice and tang and sweetness but not too much of one alone. Then... More

We visited to celebrate our wedding anniversary on a Saturday night. It was incredibly busy. The staff were fabulously professional, prompt, and courteous. We could hardly hear each other from the clamor; it was also incredibly loud. We almost walked out due to noise overload, but stuck it out. The drinks were good. The food was not particularly full-flavored. It... More

Food was great, service was great, beer list was great. Really interesting menu. Brussel sprout appetizer was so good that kids ate most of it and we had to order a second. Waitress found out it was our daughters birthday and gave her a free dessert.
