Good service and food, nice Staff. Loved the IPA beer. I was looking randomly to a place to eat before the bandshell concert in Prospect Park. An unexpected treasure!

We live around the corner and eat here often; we often takes guests in town for the weekend not up to a trek to the city. I frankly can't comment on the other menu items because I ordered the trout the first time I went and I just can't stray from it. It comes with a roasted potato medley that... More

We were rebuffed at the first restaurant we tried (packed and cash only). It was a fortuitous for us because our next try was at the Twelfth Street Bar & Grill. We were welcomed with... More

We had the calamari and a beet-cheese-arugula confection. Very enjoyable. Two of us ordered their delicious burgers and home-made fries. My husband had the salmon, and my son... More

It was a few months ago that I went, but I tried 2, and they were both different and outstanding. I went with my family twice so far, and each time we were all very happy and satisfied... More

Mid October dinner: Attentive service with multiple home-brew selections. Curried mussels were fantastic. We all had different burgers...all sizeable, yummy and inventive. Seriously stuffed our faces. Friendly, casual and hip atmosphere. Gets louder as evening progresses.

The highlights of this place were the delightful food, the open light at the floor to ceiling windows creating a stunning minimalist atmosphere. Loved the food.
