    One of our favorite spots! We usually come by a few times a year and are NEVER disappointed. This time we chose apps instead of mains. And of course cocktails! Bacon Braised Collard Greens from the daily specials. We also chose Smoked Fish Dip, Crispy Cod Sliders, Deviled Eggs, Korean Fried Chicken Wings and Pad Thai Cauliflower. For cocktails we started with English Turn, Tchoup and Albariño. All so good! It was also our 11 year anniversary and they surprised us with some cotton candy and a sparkler! Perfection!

    I was shocked how average the food was here. I got meatballs that weren’t tender and a gnocchi type pasta that was terrible. My son and husband got ribs they enjoyed but there were five which is rediculous. We got the carrots which were basic and wings were good. I was mad at myself for spending so much money on this meal and really wasn’t full. Nothing comes with any entree so you need to add a side.

    Waited 30 minutes from seating for drinks. Staff was very professional but they clearly need more. It was my son’s birthday dinner. He didn’t have to wait a half an hour to get a Coke. We got our apps before we ever got the cocktails & wine that we ordered first. We were on time. They were not. Period.

    The food was outstanding, but when we arrived the place was not full and the service was really slow. To be fair we were a table of 10 but it took along time for our drinks to come out. The food came out fairly quickly and was delicious.

    The food and service were wonderful. Not the place to come if you’re in a hurry. It also got very loud so if you were in a large group, it is hard to hear most of the people at the table except for the person right next to you.
