Stopped for a late lunch early dinner. It was busy as the weather was very nice for mid October. The food was excellent, and ok priced. The craft brews fabulous. Our wait staff was efficient and pleasant as well. Be nice to have a patio.

Yes! I got a whole rundown from the wait staff on what was able to be customized. They can certainly accommodate you. The vegan tacos I got could certainly be made with veggie filling instead of the gluteny seitan.
