I️ went during happy hour and ate at the bar. It was a few blocks from my hotel. The service was good in the bar, not that friendly but good... Food was average. It is located inside a hotel. No issues on parking.

Walked here from our hotel. Friendly wait staff with everyone we encountered. We had burger and portabello burger - both were great. Would recommend and return if we lived in area.

It was average hotel fare. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere quiet. I would stop in again if I was passing through.
