Let's keep it simple. Food is excellent (pork was amazing), restaurant was busy (make a reservation), server knew the menu very well and it's got the vibe of a "place to be" restaurant. If this were my hometown, B&B would be my regular spot.

I was at the restaurant bar in the back for a company event and enjoyed the place, had some beers and great finger food (baby back ribs, brisket sandwiches, etc.). I recommend the joint.

Sounds like you were in the beer garden, that is one of the best spots downtown to have a work function. Thanks for the nice review, see you soon. Cheers, Kevin Fraley

My visit to the B&B was for a corporate function - open bar and lots of food. Service was efficient and attentive, and the food very good. Fun place for a casual night out.

No official dress code, however if you're going for dinner I wouldn't dress down too much, you'll feel out of place. It's a downtown, more "fancier" restaurant, so people naturally get a bit more dressed up.
