This place surprised me. When the food came out I looked at it and thought that it could be anything - bland or magical. It was magical. The flavors are a big punched-up surprise that shock you into taking that second and third bite out of pure disbelief in how tasty it is.
The wait was >30 mins, the beer selection was incredible, and the entrees were appropriately large. Appetizer was very small for the price (almost $10) but delicious and inventive. Desserts are small so each person will need to order one, but are worth trying. Their homemade ginger ale is more zippy than normal ginger ale but not as sharp as ginger beer. There are dark tables with AC and there is a warm area with a butcher-block counter that is well lit - I prefer that, as it allows one to see the chefs and the fun!
I give it a 9.8/10, and that's a #2 restaurant of all time score for me. It's officially my husband's favorite place.
