I enjoy the food there, it is a little pricey, but it is tasty. It is a regular spot for my son and I to stop at! We like the atmosphere.

We have become regulars here. The menu isn't huge, but everything is delicious. The atmosphere is great. Service is excellent. The evening music is so enjoyable. Sometimes it is a little too loud to converse with others at your table.

We had a great experience for lunch during the week. We all enjoyed our meals (kids cheeseburger and pasta, adults ate sausage mac'n'cheese and the sausages meal). Everything was delicious and we would return. Fun atmosphere in a cute section of town. Nick was a great waiter, super nice.

Have been going here for years and just went back recently. The service was excellent and I think because it was the Art Fair weekend at Bronson Park, the kitchen was off its game. The pulled pork sandwich was delicious, however, the top bun was burned beyond recognition - should have been replace before serving it to me and they... More

This is a fun place. The room is a little small for the bands and the music can be loud which prevents much communication. But it's great to listen to the live bands. Food is good with a variety.

Stumbled upon this amazing place that took foodie to a new level! The most recommended dish was the grilled tofu over black eyed peas and saluted kale. The side paired well with fried okra, it was so delicious!!! Daughter had the salmon burger which was very tasty too. Had a fruity Pimms before dinner and the desserts were yummy: blueberry... More

Very nice place in Downtown Kalamazoo! We stopped by for a quick lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Too bad there was no live jazz music playing, so I'll have to come back for that. Our waiter was fantastic and super friendly! I'm sorry I didn't get his name to praise him in this review. We started with the spinach &... More
