Small expensive drinks. We didn’t eat but saw a lot of folks coming in to pick up food to go. Our waitress and her trainee were super cool. Clean place. They have a lot of competition in the area for sure. I’d go back

Had the steak salad, which was fabulous. Ask for more potatoes and onions with your steak salad. MMMMMMMMM Small but fun place downtown. Good for lunch as well. The Tuna app is yummy.

Went here for lunch. Food was good. Service was attentive. Had a variety of things. Chicken won tons were fun. Chocolate chip dessert had ten cookies so be sure to share. Potato, cheese, and bacon soup were perfect for this cool August day.

We had a great experience at The Loop. The won-ton appetizers were amazing..and won-tons are not a favorite of mine! Everyone enjoyed the entrees and drinks. The atmosphere was great-would definitely recommend
