Tucked away in the back of a shopping area, this place is worth the hunt. Great selection of beer on tap with wonderfully prepared food from an imaginative menu. Our server, Stephanie, was delightful... The perfect combo of attentive and knowledgeable.

It is a fine place I agree. Food is nice decoration is good etc. However it took really 45 minutes for serving taco. Better speed up the pace.

Had the fish and chips and one of the best fish and chips ever had. Light batter lots of fish and a flavorful tarter sauce. They are partnered with a micro brewery so excellent selection of wonderful beers. Looking forward to going back!
