I highly recommend eating here. The menu is fairly standard but the quality of the food is amazing. The salads, burgers, and pizza are all fantastic.

We stopped in here for a beer and appetizer before our intended dinner spot and I am glad we did. What a fun and interesting place! The beer was good and, unlike Liberty Tap, the server actually knew about the beers and was able to...More
