“Wedding reception”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

We chose this site for our son's wedding reception, and were pleased. Visited since and always enjoyed. Located right on Opera House Square.
Most recent visit:
Bone-in Wings (I chose BBQ sauce), which formed a nice item to share with my three buddies. $9.99

The Petite Bang
Sautéed shrimp with fresh herbs, garlic, lemon, Worcestershire sauce, beer, and butter served over Andouille risotto cakes. $9.99
This latter was remarkably flavorful; the cheesy risotto in the center was a wonderful compliment to the shrimp.

“Terrific in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

The minute you step through the front door you're aware this isn't the average dining option found in the area! Details don't go unnoticed & the friendly greeting is one of them! The lighting is dimmed, colors are warm & decor is spot-on for this charming bistro! Fabulous large bar area w/ a great spot to view a game, if thats what you're in the market for. The dining area is a mix of tables & cozy booths, allowing perfection for a romantic meal for two, or a great gathering of friends for some live music!

The menu is innovative, feeling like something out of a metropolitan area! A great variety of options w/ twists on traditional offerings- the southwest eggrolls are truly a favorite!! From choosing a few small-plate options, or an outstanding burgers to an Ahi tuna steak, salads or a great steak... the menu allows for all to enjoy!!

The owners can often be found ensuring the experience is great- whether cooking in the kitchen, or present on the floor- their hands-on approach makes the restaurant feel quaint, yet well taken care of!

Outstanding offerings for their wine list, all exceptionally reasonable in their prices. Great choices on tap for beers- incorporating some local selections too!

Be sure to check out the live music- this place can get hopping on a friday night.

You wont be disappointed... only wish there were more like this in the area!

“Average but fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

A group of us went on a Thursday night which has happy hour and a special burger menu. We had fun with friends, great burgers and beer. It was a very reasonable way to dine with friends. The atmosphere is very friendly with people meeting and greeting each other. We saw some people that we do business with.

I have ordered off the regular menu once before and it was excellent but a bit more money. I enjoyed a casual inexpensive night out. New Socials has burger night every Thursday.
