Had a really nice and relaxing evening enjoying beers we'd never heard of (Norwegian beer!) and eating good food. We had the cheese plate, a burger, fries (sooooo good) and the evenings special, a salad with chicken and goat cheese. It's cozy, you order at...More

Beer list so long anyone will find something that fits their liking, food menu very limited unless there was a separate menu. We tried the $14 chicken thigh and pork belly sliders-they were good! Two sliders for $14 is a little pricey but they were...More

Amazing burger and fries and I am pretty critical of the french fries I eat. Assortment of dipping sauces that you can choose from for your fries. One dipping sauce is included with your order but you have to spend the $.50 extra per sauce...More

Super chill atmosphere and one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. The chalkboard of local tap fare will drive the demons from your soul.

Paid $15 for a burger with no sides...burger was ok...a bit salty, and nothing to write home about. Paid $6.50 for a beer that didn't taste very good. None of their beers cost less than $6. Went upstairs because the noise was so bad downstairs....More
