Description: Get ready to experience the newest offering in the Village - Underground. Adventurous diners love the eclectic menu that includes spicy shrimp and grits, wild game chili, and crispy tempura escargot. And everyone salivates over Underground's traditional staples like rib eye steak, sloppy roast pork sandwiches with kale and the best hamburgers in Mammoth. Choose from more than 30 beers, including a selection from Mammoth Brewing Company, hand-crafted cocktails, and a curated collection of wines by the glass or bottle.

We were a party of nine ordering a variety of menu items. In general the food was undercooked. We sent back three entrees for additional cooking. The food was over salted and very disappointing in taste.

Our server was gracious, polite, helpful and thoughtful. She tried to make the best of a poor food situation and did give us a discount on our bill.

The atmosphere is dark and "underground." It appears they are set up as a bar and that may be their primary business. There is some outdoor seating.

For a week night, I was pleasantly surprised by the crowd here. The place was jumping and reminded of a local type place you find back in Chicago. The bar food was great.. especially the tater tot nachos and bbq beef sandwich.. there is a great selection of whiskey as advertised and the tap selection of beers is great. The service was good too considering the amount of people there and he was by himself. Warning to those not looking for a rowdy crowd... it got a little wild at the end of the night with some of the younger locals in there but definitely a fun time.

We went in July 2013 and ate on the patio. Actually we never saw the inside so can't comment on that. Nice service, good food and drinks. Only reason for less than 5 stars is the cocktails seemed a little pricey. They do offer some at half off during happy hour, and then we went to order more afterwards and....it was a deterrant to pay $10 for a drink. Burger (my husband) looked good. Fish tacos were good. Edamames...yummy. Salad also good. You can make a nice meal of the happy hour menu, and they were kid-friendly. You can hear the band at the Village as well.

Ok first the only concern is the small dining area is close to the bar so it does lack a bit of intimacy . Now all the great not good great ! The food is amazing . I had the elk and my wife had the lamb shank with a shared risotto. Both 5 stars plus. The wait staff was warm friendly and made us feel very welcome . The Chef came out twice the speak with about the meal . Great dining experience , we will be back !!
