Sat outside on a Friday night, waited about 15 minutes for a table. Food was great, Fish & Chips. Appetizer was a Tater-tot type of nacho dish. Very good.

I would not recommend this place if you are in a hurry, like appetizers or a menu with at least 10 items. The menu was literally one page and with a name that has fine food in it, I was seriously let down! The service...was slow and it took almost 30 minutes just to get the drinks.More

Stopped in here for a nice dinner. Large menu book had two pages of eats and many pages of cocktails. We ordered chicken sliders after looking over the disappointing menu. Two fried chicken sliders came. One was good the other was tough over cooked and...oily. We left to go find a good place to eat. If you want an extensive choice of martinis you may enjoy this. For us, we will never return.More

Had reservation here prior to production at Tennessee Theater. Beer taps out of order. Limited food and wine menu. Special Christmas cocktails. Holiday decorated Miracle Bar, so very festive ambiance. Three of us ordered the burger and fries. Burger mediocre, fries pretty good. Not sure...why the full menu was not available. Probably will not try again. ,More

I love this place! It's an historical jewelry store and it's fun to sit in the jewelry cases at tables- it's the best for people watching downtown. The menu is average but the cocktails are outstanding.

Like I said it's a swanky little modern bar that has been in town for a long while. Fun food, drinks , dancing and more! Drop in for an appetizer, stay for a drink and dancing.

Definitely a different atmosphere, and small but eclectic menu. I didn’t think the food was outstanding though... service was very slow, I’m not sure if they were shorthand or just need to be better organized.

I really enjoy the feel of this place. Modern yet tied to the past With beautiful woodwork and nice booths. Menu full of connections to the jewelry store history of the location. Had massaman chicken curry - it was ok but could have passed for...a tasty frozen dinner. Steak frites- liked the fries- personal preference would be to get without gravy under the steak. Neat place maybe not the greatest food, but worth a try nonetheless. Service was good.More
