We ate here while staying at the adjacent Courtyard by Marriott and the food was above average, but the mixed drinks were great! Not too many options walking distance from the Convention Center, but this is a good one if you need a bar!

The best fish and chips! And homemade tartar was to die for. Another favorite is the BLT sandwich which I have had several times. Not a cheap place for lunch but delicious!

It can be a little dressier at night, but I have worn jeans there many times. Same with tennis shoes. I think both are fine as long as they are not too worn.
