I have been here a dozen + times and have enjoyed my time there 90% of the time. There has been one or two bad service experiences but they weren't terrible enough to keep me from returning!

Great restaurant with great food. The service is terrific also. Everything I've had there has been very good. Limited local beer selection, but the atmosphere is nice.

Very friendly fun place. Great for burgers and fries. Pizza is a flat bread type. Don't expect New York pizza.

We arrived at 2PM on a Saturday afternoon expecting it to not be too busy. It was packed but only a short wait. The server and food was excellent.

We enjoyed our meal here. It’s basically a bar that serves decent food. They were more than happy to accommodate our choices of one main meal and three sides to share between two.

There is something for everyone here - burgers, flatbreads, small bites and full dinners. My husband had the short rib and I had a falafel sandwich. The cinnamon margaritas are to die for!
