Came for a birthday dinner. The food was good. The service was good. A little pricey for both. I think we could have had a better experience at another restaurant, although the choices are limited in Temple.

Thoroughly enjoyed sitting ar the bar with 1/2 price wine & beer & conversing with Kristen the bartender. They also have 1/2 price appetizers & lunch menu only at the bar. What a historical place, hope to see more businesses in downtown area.
