A favorite of a colleague - this restaurant never disappoints. Eclectic and modern, food is served in a "tapas" style with the focus on hot and fresh. The lobster Mac and cheese is to die for - made with Orzo instead of a more traditional pasta noodle. Get the continental salad to share with the group.

Enjoyed the sandwiches & wraps. Great string fries. Prices reasonable for the city. Overall a good experience with the exception of a very loud crowd .

We just split a Burger & Fries - and it was one of the best burgers I've ever had! The rest of the menu looked yummy too! Cute "diner" setting, a happening kind of spot!

Stopped in on a very rainy afternoon to ran a drink at the bar. Very friendly bar staff who know their cocktails! Had a few amazing gin based libations. Ate the veal and ricotta meatballs which were absolutely delicious. Loved the atmosphere. Will be back.

We went here for dinner and when we arrived we noticed the front diner area was very loud. Just from the people enjoying their meal and company. We asked, and they have a smaller second dining area that is a lot quieter. The foods here are designed to be mix in matched and shared, so that is what we did!... More

We had a late lunch at the Continental and really enjoyed it. We had a booth that faced the street so lots of light, and the staff were very good. We both had the Clubhouse and fries and the meal was very , very good - lots of meat in the clubhouse, and was very, very good. We'd definitely eat... More

A couple of my friends and I went here for a little dinner (aka an app) and drinks. I had two drinks and cheesesteak egg rolls it was about 50 bucks with tip. It's pretty expensive, but the atmosphere was fun. The bartender that night had a little bit of an attitude.

I visited this diner late on a Sunday morning with my sons. We all ordered different dishes, and all of them were excellent. Service was quick and friendly.
