Really good beer selection. The guac was good. My burger was good. Everything was pretty average for the most part, nothing amazing but good enough.

Food and service were very good. It can be quite loud at times, because it is a very narrow sized restaurant. Seating can be a little tight. Great variety of dishes available.

Hosted our Fantasy Baseball draft in their private room for the 3rd year in a row. Great comfort food, beers, craft cocktails and service! They have a small private room on the 2nd floor of their restaurant that can hold 20 people perfect for small gatherings

I had stopped in one evening for an early (4:00 PM) business dinner with a client and as such the dinner crowd had yet to arrive. We ate at the bar and our service and meal were great. I was able to observe the restaurant come to life as the evening crowd rolled in. I was impressed and made a mental note that I needed to bring my wife back to experience the cozy yet vibrant atmosphere. My wife and I returned with another couple based on what I had shared. We were not disappointed. Our waitress was tremendous. She walked us through some questions we had about the menu and offered some input on specials for that night. She was attentive, responsive and sociable throughout the evening. After we were done, there was complete consensus among my wife and our friends that coming here had been a great choice. We will definitely be returning.

Last minute business dinner for an employees last day, and the choice turned out fantastic. All three entrees in my group exceeded expectations. Ahi tuna nachos appetizer was exceptional. That is one app that will get me back sooner rather than later. Service was very good. Will be returning again in the next few weeks to try some other items on the menu.
