    Nice place downtown. Great for dinner before the theater. Servers w were attentive. Only downside was that it was loud. They had live music and it’s mostly hard surfaces, so the sound really does bounce around. That said, we were still able to enjoy conversing at the table. We will be back.

    Great location. Close to the theaters on Main Street. First time being there. Tends to be a little noisy due to the high ceilings. Food was very good except the chicken sandwich had the skin on the breast and had to take the sandwich apart to remove it because it was rubbery. Otherwise the 4 of us agreed we would definitely come back

    Burger was great, fries delicious. Pulled pork slides good, mac & cheese good. Craft beer very good and crafted cocktail so refreshing. Interior was cute and great place for just a drink or a meal or both !

    Went there before a Shea's show. The food and service were great. I highly recommend the barbeque sliders! The wine selection is limited, but the specialty drink was excellent.
