Stopped in for dinner at the recommendation of a friend. The food was plentiful and very tasty, highly recommended. The pumpkin beer was interesting, would definitely try it again. A really nice chill spot to relax and have a meal or just a drink.

Great service. Lively, fun, funky environment. And great food as well. Our group of 5 included my wife and I, our 6 year old daughter, our 5 year old son, and my Mom.

Didnt eat there, but enjoyed a beverage - one of many as they have quite an extensive drinks menu. Great vibe, young crowd, great staff!
