Good food, nice atmosphere. If you're going to eat outside, make sure you ask for a table in the shade. Indoor dining is loud. Our waitress Arijana was fantastic!

Hi none of the servers where wearing masks and the tables weren’t social distanced well. The food was pretty good but I felt uncomfortable being that Covid isn’t over. Even if the government tells you you don’t have to use common sense to make the customers feel comfortable!

Fun and energetic place to eat. All age groups except for young children. Plenty of TV's. It's really noisy. It's NOT a place to have a romantic dinner but it's a great place to meet up with friends.

The menu is great, and food was good. I did get the bacon cheeseburger, but did not finish it. There were no condiments served with it and I had to ask. I thought the bill was a bit expensive for 5 people, who had 2 drinks each, some apps, and an entre. The bill was $240 with the tip.

The worst part of it was the server. He was a bit arrogant and was not very responsive. One person ordered a drink with Gray Goose vodka and the server actually waved his index finger back and forth at him. To me, that was really uncalled for. He also ignored the plates from the appetizers, the drink glasses that were empty. I stacked up the dishes and the there were a lot of glasses on the table. So, when dinner came we were moving things out of the way to get space. Last, we just got a bill literally handed to us asking who is taking it? Did not even bother to check on us through out dinner, and toward the end, before giving us the bill ask us if we wanted anything else.

I was a server and a bartender, so maybe my standards are a bit high, but he was not good. And, I noticed how he interacted with food runners.. he seemed disrespectful, almost ordering them around.

If it wasn't for Covid, his tip would have been 5% at best.

And, I would recommend but not him as a server. Sorry, I do not remember his name.

There was a mouse inside the place while we were there and instead of taking care of the situation, they made us (including the table next to me) move to the bar.

Our first visit here. It has a nice vibe, comfortable seating and friendly staff. The food was awesome. I would recommend the kung po cauliflower for an explosion of flavors. We enjoyed everything we ordered and we were pleasantly surprised at the reasonable prices. Kudos! We will visit again soon.

We made reservations for brunch on a Sunday morning, and arrived to find a large crowd waiting to be seated. The staff told us that they were understaffed due to difficulty hiring from Covid government unemployment benefits, and we ended up waiting 45 minutes before being attended to. Also, the brunch food was poorly cooked and was nothing special.

If they are understaffed they should cut their hours, not reduce the quality of their service. We won't be back any time soon.

Made reservations for this past Sunday for 4. It wasn’t particularly busy & there were 3 people at the host stand. We were seated right away but never spoken to again so after 15 minutes of neglect we decided to leave. One of the hosts told us “thanks, have a good night!” Absurd.

I asked for a medium rare burger, but it came out rare. I sent it back and came back rare again. Spoke to manager and 3rd time was the charm. Great burger when cooked correctly.

I ordered the chopped salad, and it was fair, at best. For $13 I would expect the portion to have been larger and have more chix on it.

Food was good, but our service was very poor. Took awhile for anyone to take our order for apps, dinner and dessert. Waiter seemed very disengaged and we were there for about 2 hours before we even paid.

Just an okay experience. Nothing terribly bad but nothing special at all. Waited way too long for our reservation. There seemed to be quite a few tables that needed cleaning. That held up the seating it seemed. There were 5 of us so we needed a larger table. Our waitress was pretty good at first but never came back to see if we needed refills on our drinks or water since we were in the hot sun. Food average at best.

Food was decent! However, our group felt as though some of the items were overly salty like the potato casserole and eggs as well as some of the other brunch items!

We all shared the challah French toast between four of us and loved it! It was really delicious and decadent.

The waiter was sweet, patient and funny. The mimosas were tasty. The coffee was probably the worst I’ve had in a long time but it’s a brewery so I probably shouldn’t have assumed that coffee would be good.

Food was surprisingly delicious. Our server was friendly and didn’t rush us. Mixed drink sizes were small. For $10 a pop, they should have come out in something larger than what felt like a shot glass. But aside from that, we enjoyed it.

Beer selection is great, but food can be improved.

We were there to watch the nfl draft and ordered food and drinks, but felt the server was in a rush to kick us out, even when we were still ordering drinks

The food was okay Liked the cheese curds and the fish and chips. I ordered bbq ribs was there and BBQ platters to go It was all over cooked, over smoked . burned all the bbq items. Sauces was spicy Almost like we got leftovers Instead Of fresh items. What I paid for the entire meal and take out. Could’ve been a lot better. I use to work in restaurants etc Especially everything I ordered to take out to take home.
Our waitress was very nice and place was too Overall the food wasn’t as good. I would come back for the cheese curds, fish and chips and onions rings Other than that.

Service was meh. The waiter seemed like he was annoyed to have to wait on tables. Rarely came back to the table, brought the wrong food to the table. The food was ok. Nothing special. Bar food.
