Great for after work mixer, private room dining, with regal loft like feel. Exposed ceiling and bricked walls... gives it a seductive appeal. Located on Main Street with access to the trolley, making it convenient to access. Great food and drinks.

This is one of my regular places to go. I would have given it 5 stars, but the food can be inconsistent at times. Many nights it's 5 stars, but some nights it seems to be only 3 stars. I'm not sure if I just hit it at times the main chef is out. If you stick with the basics,... More

The deviled eggs were delicious, as were the the fish tacos and Mussels. Actually the Mussels were terrific! Plump, meaty and with an excellent broth. They have a limited dessert menu (3) so we got one of each. The chocolate truffle cookie was very good. The chiffon cake was good. But the star of the round was the lemon creme... More

We visited last night and I am still thinking about the food and drinks! We went with another couple and we loved the atmosphere. Wrap around bar allows room for everyone! We ordered a little bit of everything. We had crab cakes which were sandwiched between fried green tomatoes. The shrimp was served with bread and the most unbelievable sauce... More

Dined here by myself while in town for a conference. Cool vibe inside - comfortable relaxed atmosphere - in an up and coming neighborhood. Extensive cocktail menu, and the couple drinks I tried were DELICIOUS. The fish tacos were some of the BEST I have ever eaten, but the BRUSSELS SPROUTS.... Oh... My.... Lord.... unbelievably good. I wanted to dive... More

Bar staff are very attentive and they made me great mojitos. Didn't eat here but the food menu looked good. Located in the Cooper Young district which is just lovely.

From the time I entered the door I was greeted with a significant smile from Mr. Connor Hunt which made me feel so comfortable. My waiter was David and he was magnificent. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was so peaceful. Mr. Hunt even visited our table through out the meal and made some very delicious choices as far... More
