The Fried chicken sandwich was AWESOME!! Service was friendly and well balanced. Attentive but not annoying, which is just perfect!

I loved the food! The portions are small but delicious which was great for snacking between drinks. The vibe of the night was great with friendly, fun people. The dj picked popular throwback songs that everyone couldn't help but sing and dance to. I will definitely be coming back!! I just wouldn't suggest getting a table. We barely saw our server later in the night and it was hard getting water refills.

The restuarant/ bar was great but the food is about a 2/5. The 1/2 half chicken was raw in the middle and so was the burger. Overall love the live band and the experience.

The $6 deal was excellent for the sliders - really terrific sliders! The service was great too. And $1 an ounce wine is a huge draw! The turnovers seemed expensive even at $6 but that was my only issue. My friends and I had a great time and I would come back for the app deal and $1 an ounce wine for sure.

We arrived early for reso. Had a drink at bar. Plastic glasses, warm cava and dirty tables. Literally 7 other people in restaurant and tables not clean? Needless to say we didn't stay to eat

Over priced, small portions, and low quality food.

This is definitely more the place to go on a Friday or Saturday night out. Otherwise, the music was so loud we had to scream to hear one another. I genuinely couldn’t tell who was staff and who were friends of staff or customers. It honestly felt like we were invading on their staff party/that we weren’t meant to be there. Our server was nice enough but you could tell everyone didn’t want to be there/didn’t want to be doing their jobs.

The food was yummy and the service was amazing 🤩
Id recommended sitting outside if you’re looking for a chilled out bite to eat.

Great little gastropub with VERY competitive pricing. Definitely reccomend the queso and beef tacos. I ordered 5 dishes as I found I wanted to try most of it. Will return happily and congrats on 1 year

The overall experience was enjoyable, though my jacket went missing and upon trying to contact them about their lost and found, there was no answer on their phone the several times I called and no response to a voice message left regarding the lost item either. Their customer service is lacking in this regard and would like this matter addressed.

Petty Cash's Cinco de Mayo party was so poorly planned-- we had a reservation and showed up on time, however, it took about 15 mins for a server to even acknowledge us and bring us waters and a menu. By the time we got to place our order they had run out of a few menu items. We attempted to order again, only to be told they had run out of food again. We ended up leaving. Not a great first impression, will just stick to coming here for drinks (if anything).

The advertised deal was greatly misleading. The deal was "$1 wings and $1 beers", but you had to get a regular priced beer, not a $1 beer, in order to get the wings deal (which at $1 a wing, is not that much of a deal). And then we found out that the "$1 beers" were 2 oz small sample sized beers of their house beer, which works out to the same price as a pint, so not even a deal. On top of all this, they ran out of wings at 8pm??? On their own prescribed wing night. Probably not going here again.

High energy and very social. Get there early to avoid line ups or book ahead.
