Had a nice meal here with some excellent drinks and desserts. Our table was a bit close to some other tables but our server was very good. Tasty fries, and the prices were fair.

Overall very good bar food. The bar is great, drinks are ok, wings are very good. Great during nice weather to sit outside.
