“Had lunch there last week. This place stands out from the other "gastropubs" out there that are just riding the wave.The service, beer and food are all a cut above. Great homemade pickles, addictive polenta croutons on the Caesar salad, and competent, well informed servers.”

“I had garbage service both times I went. Bartenders were to cool as often they are. Major beer slip up left me with a beer, which had been sitting in the fridge for over 45 minutes, ending up in front of me bc I was lucky enough to have ordered the one they accidentally poured. Not cool. $6 for a f'in draft!! C'mon.”

“MAB's post (above) was spot on!!! I had that Ceasar's salad today and it was THE BOMB!!! (that means GREAT! BTW) polenta croutons were off the hook GOOD!!! Mouth watering! Delectable! BEST tasting Ceasars salad I have EVER HAD! hands down! Only wish they gave a little more lettuce. But there was PLENTY of other stuff on the plate too! AWESOME!. This place is 5 star people! Service was FRIENDLY, and knowledgeable.They filled my glass of water like 4 times!!! Lol. Always an indicator of great service. Coffee was really good too! Another indicator. DETAILS folks! Desert looked AMAZING. Someone else bear me had one. UNBELIVEABLE presentation and attention to detail. The burgers looked amazing too. the table next to mine ordered 3. WOW. Fries looked good too.
