Great place for a small bite and drinks! HUGE beverage menu full of bourbon selections. I suggest not going there if you want a full meal or bigger menu selection, but what they had to offer was very good. The Fried Green Tomatoes and Orange-Sambal Wings were delicious. Also recommend the Lamb Flatbread.

Great place and environment. High top tables have chairs without back and they are so uncomfortable. Service slow. Ordered goat cheese dip with pitas. We ran out of pitas and had half dip left. Ordered more and then they charged for extra pitas!??? Bourbon selection overwhelming..and expensive for their "doubles" which really were more of a single order.

Best meal I’ve had in a long time! Everything is a “small plate,” but don’t be mistaken, there is plenty of food. Enjoy your alcohol, and don’t skip dessert!

Impressive selection of bourbon and whiskey. Excellent small plates. Land flatbread was wonderful.

Great space and fun food. We went out for a birthday. Didn’t time it well since it was before a UL game which made service slow

This is a great place, and for not being open very long, overall it went really smoothly. The food is absolutely astounding. We were a little bummed they didn’t have anything that could serve as dinner (even “small plates” usually have a burger or sandwich or something filling), but luckily we saw the menu beforehand and ate before going. We still got the pretzels and beer cheese and the lamb flatbread. Pretzels and beer cheese were good - something salty to snack on through the tastings - but was more like a crescent roll than a normal pretzel. Lamb flatbread was absolutely to die for.
Their whiskey listing is pretty amazing. Pages and pages of options. You order using codes on the sheet. They do bring the bottles out to the table so you can really see what you’re trying. This was good, because they brought us the wrong pour in one of our first tastings (with a $15 price difference!) so I’m glad we were able to catch that. I also wish they would have printed the bill instead of the server standing over me with a card reader.
I had one of the mixed cocktails and it was absolutely delicious. A whiskey sour with lavender, complete with egg white.
Overall, amazing ambience and will return!

I think this place has some work to do. The food was tasty but the flatbread should have been toasted or at a minimum warmed. The Goat Cheese would have been nicer if served with some cut vegetables. The brussel sprouts were not cooked long enough, but very few restaurants do them right. The service was slow. We waited 15 minutes before we asked someone to find our server.
The bourbon selection is unmatched and the cocktail I had was made to perfection. The bar is truly the star of this place. We will go back but we will wait. The place has only been open a couple of weeks so I am sure that they will work out the kinks.

Our experience was exceptional we love burbon and while the selection is small at just 30 pages (ha ha) the knowledge to pick unique great finds is amazing
