Enjoyed a long chat with the Chef and Bartender. Great trout dish. Loved the internal wood fired grill. Half chicken and wings should also be tried. Great beers. The biscuit beer is excellent.

I was in Kansas City for a little over a week, and my food and beer was so delicious I had to go back again before I left. The building's not much to look at, but the trout I had was amazing. They have a...More
