“This place could be so much better. There is some creativity in the menu, both on the bar and the food, unfortunately, there are many more misses than hits, and execution both front and back were way below par. I really wanted to like this place, and have gone 3 times now, always with unpredictable results. The last visit was a group of 4, who all ordered burgers cooked medium. Two were very overcooked (one cracked it was so dry) while the other two were very rare, one was still cold in the center. Get meat temperatures correct is a basic requirement of any kitchen, but when you are a burger joint that cannot properly cook burgers, that's pretty bad. The onion rings are tasty, but overpriced. There's only so much you can do with a fried piece of onion! Their pickleback shot (a shot of whiskey followed by a shot of pickle juice) is creative and actually very tasty. Watching the bartender scoop ice with a glass made my friend (a bartender) stick to bottled beer. (putting glass in the ice is a HUGE no-no in any bar) The bartender on one visit was the sole employee, but knew nothing about the specials, or even the regular menu items, again, pretty basic stuff. When asked, he told us, "I'm a bartender, not a waiter!" Actually, you are the only person there, so you need to know what you are selling!

This place really could be good. I love the location, the concept of a low key bar and burger joint is great, but someone needs to take responsibility for the quality of food and service. Simply put, no matter how new and nice it looks, if you run it like a dive bar with food as an afterthought, that is what it will become.”
