We ended up for dinner here 2 nights ago as we were getting into town late & wanted a quick meal that looked (on Yelp) to be a good place that would satisfy all of us (my husband, myself & our six year old son). The reception was warm & we were seated promptly (we had made a reservation but... More

We were looking for something close to O Street and found Scion. We each had a sandwich coconut crusted fish, crab cake, and crab avocado Reuben. Everything was great.

This place was recommended for its pet friendly patio but we never got waited on. My husband had to go to the bar and get us drinks. The bartender said they were having an event and only had 3 servers. The event was $5 pints or something ....it wasn't even that busy in there. As a former server in my... More

We wandered in as this looked like the most interesting, mid-priced restaurant on the street. Our waitress was super, nice. Our food came quickly which surprised me because a big group ordered ahead of us. It was good. As an architect, I couldn't help but notice that the interior is looking worn out from use. The upholstery, finishes, restrooms, etc.... More

Excellent food - try the Mac and Cheese! There were 4 of use and each had a different meal yet all were excellent. Relaxed place no pretension. I'd go back in a minute.

Can't comment on the food, because we left after waiting 25 minutes for a drink. Waiter was overheard complaining to host that she shouldn't have sat another table in his section. Table next to us had to go up to the host stand after waiting and waiting for their credit card to be processed. At that point, another helpful employee... More

One of the biggest rules you'll read on the back of the menu (and we had plenty of time to read them all) is you are only allowed to sit at your table for brunch for a max of 2 hours. I'm not sure if the 10 minutes we waited to order drinks counted agains that time or the 25... More
