Had hanger steak with a salad and a few red wines. Excellent quality and the Scheid pinot noir was great.

All the employees are very nice and considerate. I feel like the food has increased in quality since my last visit, several months ago. I’m glad I came back for the Valentine’s Day menu.
It would be nice if they were willing to do more tasters; many of the beers are uncommon and I’d like to be able to sip something once before committing to a whole glass of it.

It was Valentine’s Day. Enjoyed the food and appetizers. It was a bit loud but not overly so. Will go back again.

This was a random find as it was my first time to Orange and I am happy I did. Fun cool place, good music playing in the background, good crowd noise, not overpowering but loud enough to give a good energy. Food was very good, extensive bourbon list and friendly efficient service. Will be back again if I am in town.

They have a very limited menu, so be sure to check it out before you go. I wish I could've made a selection from their brunch or lunch menu, but that's not an option at dinner. Guess I'll have to go back a few more times!

Mitzy was wonderful and helps us out greatly. It was a very pleasant environment, a little loud for our taste but it was still nice. The portions vary but the quality is spectacular. Thanks again.

Went here with a group of my girlfriends for a fun "girls day out" lunch on a Saturday. The services was super slow but the food was very good. I recommend allowing enough time to enjoy. We enjoyed an appetizer, drinks (beer and champaign), entree, and dessert which took over two hours to complete. Mostly because our waitress was slow. You would ask for something and get it 10 minutes later. We ordered coffee (French Press) with dessert and I needed a coffee cup... you guessed it... 10 minutes later, I had a coffee cup. Maybe you'll have better luck with the service. The food is definitely worth trying.

We had a Window Bench seat next to the Bar. It wasn't too crowded when we arrived so we could actually have a conversation. However within 20 minutes that changed when a group of boisterous people joined the Bar adjacent to us. They kept crowding closer and closer to us while trying to talk over each other. I thought at one point they would be sitting in our laps! They really were oblivious to anyone else around them. I wouldn't have minded so much however, I was on a first date and not wanting to make a scene I put up with their activities. This may not be a good choice for a first date. The Salmon was excellent I only wish the portion was larger for the price they charge. Our Waitress was polite, encouraging and very attentive.

Went for first visit at 2:15pm on a Tuesday afternoon. Always try to go at OFF hours because less crowded and noisy. Was perfect time, had Mac & Cheese and Kale Caesar salad. Excellent as is the diet cola which is small batch made. Delicious food, great service. Mac & Cheese superb, very creamy with panko crumb topping. Fantastic. Will return SOON! Note: parking in Public lot behind restaurant is allowed FREE for this restaurant.

I hate to say it, but the food is mediocre at best. For the exorbitant prices, I would expect a lot more creativity and flavor. I'd return for beer, but that's it. They should really up their culinary game!!!

Terrific for lunch or just a beer, but not so good for dinner because of the pricing. Small happy hour menu. Party of 5 adults had 3 beers, 1 martini and 1 press of coffee plus 5 entrees for $120 plus tip.
