I ate here for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon and it was great! The place was not crowded but it was starting to fill up when we left.
One of the reasons we ate here was because of the menu, they have a lot of vegan/vegetarian which was great!
I ordered a chicken taco, which was more like a wrap with a Mexican twist and the spicy ranch was AWESOME. The bar looked like it was well stocked and priced as well. I looked over several tables and their food looked awesome (especially the burgers). My friend ordered the nachos and tofu chili and it was great according to her.
The staff was friendly and the music was not too loud although I'm sure it was going to get louder the later it got.
The hardest part about this place was to find it! It is up some steps and there's two entrances so don't give up if you can't find it. It is worth it!
Definitely a great location too right across the street from the falls.

Had lunch there last Saturday with a group of friends. The service was a little slow but not bad.
The food was wonderful. I had the roasted chicken burrito and it was delicious. Very fresh.
We ordered the mile high nachos as an appetizer for the group-5 adults, and it was huge as well as delicious . You will be full when you leave. They do not skimp on the portions. I loved having a seat by the windows. You can open them and enjoy the breeze as well as the view. If you are worried about climbing the steps(very steep) you can walk around the building and come in the back. I recommend it for a casual meal right in the middle of all the activity downtown.

We had a party of eight people the service was horrible the waitress acted as though we ruined her day by being there. We ordered the so called famous crab cakes and when the food arrived it was cold and the crab cakes smelled as if they were left in the sun for a few days. The brisket nachos were a heaping mess on a plate too many flavors. It was expensive we were very disappointed because everyone was saying it was a great place. We won't return

We had friends in town and stopped in for Lunch. We were seated by the windows that face main street. Great view of all the activity on main street. We had the chips/salsa, fish tacos, hamburger, enchilada, and chili. All the food was good, they provided excellent service and the prices were reasonable.We will definitely be back.
