Bistro 1245 is ultra casual with a prototypically college campus atmosphere. The grill could use an upgraded exhaust fan as it always seems smoky inside but, in spite of this, I like it. The food is of good quality and well-prepared. You can choose your wine straight from the eclectic collection stored on racks around the room. And the prices are college campus cheap. With a menu that's a cut above the usual meat and potatoes or pizza and beer fare, Bistro 1245 is not just for students any more.
