If your going to drink this is the perfect place. Food sucks every time I go. Jumbo wings are extremely small, taco are tiny and food overpriced for what you get. Service is normally slow but normally your not in a hurry. Don't use your Debit card because there is a 3% fee to use it to my shock. If... More

A place that stands by supporting local farmers/producers....one of the best beer lists around, cocktails that are hand crafted like pre-prohibition days, fine vinos & a passion for the arts....who can ask for more. This IS NOT a SYSCO truck restaurant, so if you are used to those, the freshness will be a shock to your system.

We decided to go there for something different. As some other reviewers wrote the place can have slow service even when there are very few customers! I worked for a company that had a policy to treat customers as you want to be treated. That also meant you picked up a phone call if someone was not at their desk.... More

The menu is too far out there and they just don't have enough variety as far as food goes. The staff is great and the atmosphere is really nice.

Haven't eaten there and may not. Have been there for the entertainment and beer. One night we were there, they ran out of most popular brands like Miller Lite, Corona and Molson Canadian which is inexcusable. The owner is an aficionado of craft beers, so he didn't seem to care about the more mundane brews.

Pros: I will say that I find their food tasty and not the norm. Their beer selection is quite large. Cons: although the food is tasty it is over priced. Major con: The beer is way over priced. They have a big selection but I can get the same beer a few miles away for a lot less money. They... More

This is a restaurant that we often drove by and said, "Hey, we should try that sometime." I'm glad that we finally did. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but now that we've sampled a few things, I will order with far more confidence. The flavor combinations and unique twists are quite delicious without going so far as to... More

If you just want a beer at the bar, this place may be fine as the selection included some unique selections. While the reviews were mostly positive, the reality was very different. With a virtually-empty restaurant early in the evening, the drink order was taken well after being seated and the drinks were even slower to arrive (mostly just beer).... More
