Great place to eat & drink and watch the Bills play. We have been there for dinner many times but I finally got to try Polenta Wings...yum! And fried pickles and their unique signature bread which is truly amazing! The menu is full of creative offerings and it's always beautifully served. We brought 86 yo Gramma there for Mother's Day...

Good food and reasonably priced. Went there for a late dinner on a Monday night when. It much else in the area was open. Food and service were good. I would go back.

We were determined for wings, but came here because it was closer to where we were staying. What a great decision, food was delicious and service friendly. Bartender even made a drink for me (mojito, which can be a pain) even though it wasn't on the menu. The complimentary bread was delicious. I definitely recommend this place!

After some disappointing bars on Allen, this was a pleasant surprise! We both enjoyed some great mixed drinks and craft beers. The bartender was great and service was overall excellent. We ordered the fried artichokes while we drank...DELICIOUS! If we were ever in Buffalo again, we would come back.

We were pleasantly surprised by this place that was new to us. It offers a fairly large selection of meal choices from salads to sandwiches to entrees. Service was very good and the food was as well. We will be back.

This place is amazing. Great beer selection. Awesome signature drinks. Fantastic customer service. It is such a wonderful bar you forget about the amazing food. The polenta wings are such fun. The chicken finger sub is the best in the city. Their signature tomato soup is so delicious and both light and filling at the same time. I eat there... More

We stopped by for a drink mid week. Bartender quickly served us but after that no contact. Other staff arrived and totally did not look our way. Given we are foreigners easily given away by our accents we would have loved a chat with the locals. Not to be.

We have stopped here 5-6 times but the not to come is during the Allentown Art Festival. I doorman extorts $5 per person to enter. The menu is scaled back to salads and wraps. I had the pseudo-Gyro which would have been much better if made traditionally. Bathrooms are CLEAN. Women seem to use the men's room freely. Don't piddle... More

We had a lovely family evening catching up with exrended family. The service was friendly and accommodating. They were fine with us sitting in our window seat for hours. And others leaving the restaurant were raving about the food. Perhaps we made poor choices. We started with a daily special soup - lemon artichoke. It was so overpowering lemon juicy... More
