We came for dinner on a girls weekend. It was Saturday at 6:00pm, 8 people. When we walked in they said they were reservation only and we’d need to wait an hour. (you can reserve on Open Table). It actually was closer to a 30 minute wait. Good food, but they were out of a few items and it was a little noisy. Good service. The salmon tacos were excellent. Also good we’re the stuffed meatballs and the sweet potato tacos. Nutella pizza was amazing, but share it with the table.

I eat out every day, sometimes twice. This place was talked up all day and was quite a disappointing dining experience.
The food is just meh - lots of brown stuff - and the building is too large, open and cold. I stuck around for Trivia Tuesday and had drinks and THAT was fun!
The upstairs is teaming with mold - in the carpet and ceilings - and is always empty, but the bathrooms are way up there and way in the back.
I must say that the service was good, and the staff at all levels were smiling, polite ... that part was nice.

This was our first time in the establishment and we weren't disappointed. We loved the draft beer selection and both the seating and waitstaff were welcoming and fun to be around. Our food was served promptly and it was fabulous. Would definitely go again!

Almost too many brews to choose from! The brick oven pizza was out of this world. Big place with lots of seating at tables and the bar. Will definitely go back!

Fantastic dinner. Many wonderful beers on tap. Had the wicked weed which was barrel bourbon aged. Delish. I had crab macaroni which was a tasty meal and hubby had fish n chips. Great night to celebrate his birthday on a snowy night. Owner Corey was delightful and friendly. Our new fav place!!! Bartender lovely also. He was on the ball
