Gotta love comfort food dining with a huge beer selection. Menu is a bit too broad but there is literally something for everyone. Wings were perfect. Nashville hot chicken sandwich was great but should be offered grilled versus breaded and fried. Lemon chicken with zucchini noodles was good but chicken was bland. Tri-tip additions to menu were so welcome they were sold out of it. Couldn’t get into BJ’s in California. This Orlando location is hard to get to with Millenia mall traffic but isn’t too crowded inside. More

I love this restaurant. It is a gastropub environment with excellent food. I have never had a bad thing at the restaurant. It has a pretty lake view, and they have specials sometimes that sound a bit out of this world (like ahi tuna chili) and it was delicious! The fish and chips, the burger, and the blue cheese butter topped steak and the Poke bowl are favorites, but you can't go wrong with anything in the restaurant. More

We are a plant based kitchen. At this time all of our menu offerings are vegan. With the exception of our vegan mayo, all of our menu items are made from scratch using the highest quality and best tasting ingredients we can source to produce some the best tasting food in all of Florida. At this time our menu offerings have a strong Mexican influence and inspiration.

All of our tacos are made from scratch. Our tortillas are hand made using blue corn or red-white corn tortilla. Our tortillas combined with bold flavored vegetables make for an incredible taco that you won't be able to find anywhere else.

Thank you and we look forward to serving you soon : )More
