“Awesome atmosphere if you get a table outside!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012 via mobile

Great place to have cocktails with friends and people watch. One of their bars is located right on the sidewalk. Decent drink menu and well priced.

“Food is nothing special but a great outdoor atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

I only had a burger and it was... well, a burger. The fries were actually quite good, as was the service. In nice weather, I'd think it's one of the best places in downtown Lexington, especially before a concert at Rupp.

“Two good and one bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012 via mobile

We sat out on the patio and street side twice with both of those visits being very good. However, we swung by for a late dinner and were disappointed. Our waitress, Cathy, never smiled until bringing the check. She ignored a knife on the floor and didn't pick it up. She fumbled some plates and dropped one but instead of picking it up she kicked it under a vacant table. The food was decent but we won't go back because of her.
