“We will be be back !!!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

My sister lives in the area and I go to visit often. We have been driving by for a very long time and comment each time that we should try this place after an afternoon of shopping. Finally we made a plan to stop at the end of a shopping day. My husband met us there. Worked out perfect, Happy Hour is from 3-6, his beer was $2.50 for a pint and we had $5.00 Martinis. Appies were discounted as well. The Bartender came out to take our order, we shared an appie. This was on a Monday afternoon, seemed to be a busy, friendly little place. We have decided that this is our new fave little place and the boys can meet us when we are done our little shopping outings.

“A hidden treasure!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

I'd been wanting to stop here since it opened but was a little put-off by the location. I could not have been more wrong and should have known better! It's those little hidden treasures that often offer the best experience. We sat outside and had one of the happy hour martinis. The bartender came out and took our order and checked on us to see if we wanted another or something to eat. Quite honestly, I don't even remember the commercial distractions or the sounds of traffic. Not because I had more than one (because I didn't) but because what I do remember is how nice it was to have a place like this right in the middle of it all where you can take a moment to relax and enjoy the moment!

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Nice place with a relaxing atmosphere. A decent menu better than typical "bar" food. My only complaint is their wine selection. When Wine Bar is in the title, you expect a better wine selection.

“Great place to eat and relax”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

To be honest we didn't expect much in this bar/restaurant stuck in the middle of a strip mall, but we were super impressed!

The atmosphere was relaxed, with big comfy armchairs much like a coffee shop. The duo playing piano an guitar were good, and not too loud, which was a nice change.

The service was very friendly, and it turns out that the place is run by a family with the 2 sons behind the bar. They are excellent cocktail mixers and have obviously had plenty of experience.

The food was just what we were looking for and was very reasonably priced as well. Not pretentious, with things like nachos, sliders, and flatbreads, all of which were between $7 and $10.

The choice of cocktails and beverages was also excellent and overall we were made to feel welcome and our business was obviously appreciated, which is nice. It shows when a the staff in an establishment like this actually care about the business and customers, and this was a great example of it.

Highly recommended!
