Almost perfect. Flavors, presentation, imagination, decoration all excellent! The lamb ribs’ sauce was amazing BUT The lamb would have been much better if there were more meat than fat on the bone. More

Fantastic burgers and Mac an cheese. I’m sure everything else is good too. Great beer selection. They play good music at a decent volume, not a quiet place but that’s their style and my coworkers and I love it. We have a lot of contractors from out of the country and we always bring them here.
