Went at a suggestion from a local. Walked there from our hotel. Easy seating. Great craft beers. Food was great...a loop burger was outstanding. The Slice of pork on the burger made the sandwich delicious. Go..well worth it.

Best calamari in town...hands down. The sauce it has, (which I cant remember) is great. The rest of the food we tried was ok, not bad, but nothing special. Drinks were tasty, and average priced. Not the place you want to go on a weekend...More

Everything on the menu is a bit pricey considering what actually comes out of the kitchen. $15 for 8 small buffalo chicken wings and they're not the best wings I've tasted by a long shot.
