    We lived the food! Service was good but the noise was horrible!!! It was ok until we asked if the top could be closed because it was getting very cold… BIG MISTAKE! We couldn’t even finish our drinks! The noise was absolutely horrible. Please do something to mitigate the noise. We will not be back until something is done..

    Our server was great, attentive and personable. Drinks, food and atmosphere were great! The reason for not 5 stars is because our reservation was at 6:30pm and we were sat right away, however we didn’t get our food until 7:45pm. The server apologized a few times as she checked on us, which is nice that she acknowledged it was taking a awhile. But still disappointing since we were pretty hungry by the time our food was brought out and all we ordered was a chicken salad and short rib grilled cheese.

    The brussels sprouts are still delicious but the halibut was a little overdone. I miss the salmon that was on the menu a few months ago. Hopefully it'll come back.

    Food, service, view, drinks - fabulous. The patio was great until it filled up and the noise was so much I couldn't hear my partner even when she yelled. We boxed up the remainder of our food and left. The food really was amazing and the drink special was phenomenal. If you want a quiet evening out - not the place. If you want a great place for a large group of friends - perfect.

    Food was hit or miss. The fries were floppy and just, meh. Corn dip was so good. Brownie was yummy. Baked potato not great and both meats over cooked. The atmosphere was awesome but the food didn’t match unfortunately Also, our sever took forever to take our order and didn’t check in on us much at all and it wasn’t even busy! We’d go back if they upped the food game since it’s such a cool place.

    Sat outside for a lovely view of the valley. Food was ok. Had the Cajun noodles with chicken. Too salty. Beers were cold. Such a large space both upstairs and downstairs and hardly anyone there. Patio seating was beautiful for a warm summer evening.

    I absolutely loved my french dip sandwich. But others that I dined with were less pleased with their orders. I heard that the BLT was just average, and that the price warranted exceptional. The bone marrow appetizer was okay, it was a nice presentation, but again expensive for what you got. I would recommend this restaurant, but with the caveat of depending on what you order, and with a warning on how expensive it is for what you are getting. The server was an absolute gem. She took great care of us and was super pleasant.

    The Cobb salad came to the table with no dressing so we had to wait for that and also asked for salt and pepper. The salad lacked lettuce all the ingredients hid what little lettuce was on the plate. Instead of fresh avocado the salad had canned not fresh guacamole on it. This salad was not worth the price we paid. We also had the short rib grilled cheese which doesn’t represent your normal grilled cheese with gooey cheddar. Instead it’s a little sweet for my liking so I added grey poupon to give it better flavor. It took ten minutes for anything we asked for out of the kitchen. I believe they should invest in having at least salt and pepper on the table.

    Drove by this place and saw it for the first time and decided to do brunch the next Sunday. We sat on the main floor but was seated in their little jail cell. We loved the privacy. Server was quick, kind and knowledgeable to our questions. We all thought their specialty drinks were good. Between three of us we tried four different ones. Two whiskey and two vodka drinks. They were good. The food we had, breakfast burrito, eggs Benedict and the hash were great. My son and husband loved the short ribs. We will be back to try the dinner out very soon. This place was a great find for us.

    We had a very nice dinner! Good food, friendly service. However, the sun room was HOT and the windows on the northeast corner were without blinds so 2 of our group sat in the sun, even after we moved the table to get out of it! They say they have blinds for the window on order. Good thing! Overall, fun place with good food and if it had been cooler or had blinds, we would have said ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Eliza is a fabulous server. The gentleman who greeted us was super nice. Drinks were delish and we enjoyed being in the sun room. We sat at a 2-top by the windows. I think they sat us there for the view towards the north...AND the upper windows were open. I could hear the traffic from Wasatch and Fort Union. Which was sometimes disruptive. The sun was setting right into my eyes so I moved my chair to block it while we ate. It surprised me that this wasn't noticed and that with the amount of vacant tables we weren't seated elsewhere b/c of that reason. It's a small issue. The menu looks amazing, the food is 'ok'. The space downstairs was closed..which is actually more attractive then the sunroom. To us this restaurant should be hopping! It was very quiet, Porcupine Pub is adjacent and their parking lot full. What is going on that isn't right here? Another server who brought our food was so rushed to leave the table we couldn't even tell him we needed silverware. With a nearly empty dining room, why rush? We would advise they get a planning person who could help shape the business with what is going right and not going right to help. The bill was $115 for food and drinks (Burger, yam brûlée, strawberry salad w/salmon). We frequent other restaurants in the valley where the bill can be that much, yet felt this was expensive for this quality of food plus a tip. I'm sorry it is not more positive, thank you for reading, hope this helps.

    Went for brunch, sat in the sun room which was extremely hot. We watched another family switch tables 5 different times trying to escape the heat. There were only 4 other tables occupied while we were there, our server was almost non existent. When everyone ordered there was only one special request which was for no onions on a salad. When our food arrived the salad was covered in onions.

    Overall, the experience was good. Several in my party had the salads and enjoyed them very much. I has the pistachio crusted halibut and enjoyed it as well. The restaurant was more noisy than I prefer because of acoustics upstairs. We dined in the 'library' section and after poking my head into the bar area after, decided that we had chosen wrong. The bar looked more interesting and comfortable. Service was ok, but at this price point could have been better.

    Fantastic cocktails and food. Dishes were creative and delicious. Service was a bit slow but all staff were friendly. Highly recommend trying out this restaurant for a unique experience. Upstairs bar and patio are both a unique look and fun decor. Chandeliers in the bar area. A great view and misters in the upstairs patio area - has a retractable roof, plants and good vibe.
