We go here regularly and love to eat on the outdoor deck in summer. There's a great bar but we don't usually sit at the bar. It's decent for having a conversation. The nice thing is you can get small plates or a large entree....More

The atmosphere is woodsy, picnic tables, rustic. Pretty copper bar. Nice 2nd floor/roof patio. Food is "different" - not your usual burger joint. But, I think they are a bit pricey for what you get. Service is average. Food is ... eh. Not totally impressed....More
