My girlfriend and I eat here frequently. Toeny is an exceptional chef, and his creativity in the kitchen makes my stomach happy. My favorite dish here is a seasonal small plate, the flaky, house-stuffed pierogies in brown butter; the kimchi fries are also high on the 'regular' list; the wings are tasty. But it's through trying many of the ever-changing... More

Stopped in with another couple, food and beverage was good. Met our expectations had a relaxing meal with prompt courteous servers. No problems or complaints. Our friends are food snobs, lol, not one complaint.

I've been to this restaurant a half dozen times in the past year or so and the food never disappoints. They have an eclectic group of entertainers and host small events. The food is farm-to-table and they work with local growers and producers. Menu items rotate but there are some constants like the fish n chips and the crabcake sandwich... More

The service was great, but we were the only people there besides one person sitting at the bar. We ordered 1/2 dozen wings, they had good flavor but they were small and not meaty. I had a burger that was really good and my husband had a Caesar salad that was also good. Add 2 cokes and the bill was... More

They had unique options on their menu which I appreciated. It was a bit expensive, not crazy but I think I spent $14 on food and a soda for lunch. My biggest concern is how dark and dingy the place was. The bar didn't seem very clean and the bathroom was filthy!

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
