The staff at this pub were the best. Friendly and attentive. The kitchen put out some gross food. Luckily they did not make us pay for the food. Still left a nice tip for the floor staff. Skip this place if your hungry.

We sat outside in the shade and enjoyed the heirloom tomato and peach salad, warm farro salad, and the salmon dish. Everything was very tasty and full of fresh produce. Service was great and it was enjoyable sitting outside. Will be back!

First off, lunch and dinner are good here. However, I recently went just for a pre-movie drink and appetizer at the bar. It was hopping. And everyone was super friendly. So, I didn't feel awkward being a single woman at the bar. I had an...More
