So we went for brunch... Cofee was cold... We tried order another to see if would came hot but once again it was cold I almost ask for ice so it could be ice coffee...
Potatoes were burn and old.
The place is beautiful but the brunch was horrible.
We went other time for dinner and it was great but brunch never more

Food was great. Comfortable with the Covid precautions EXCEPT our waitress removed her mask every time she came to our table to talk with us.
Unacceptable in this health climate. We were able to hear her just fine through the mask. There was no reason to remove the mask.

We love the outside seating and the seating on the deck area. I wish there was a shrimp option for the Caesar salad 😊

The online reservation had two options: indoor or patio. Wanting to eat outside, I reserved a table at the patio but was shocked to arrive at the restaurant and learn that "patio" was simply another indoor space, with no windows open to the outside. We waited outside until a (non-reservable) table on the sidewalk was free. My friend's bacon cheeseburger arrived without bacon and my eggplant parm sandwich arrived without marinara sauce (which I had asked them to subtitute for their salsa). It was pretty taste-free. On the positive side, it wasn't overly expensive and the server was friendly. We won't be returning.

Because it was a cool day we opted for indoor seating which was safe because the restaurant was mostly empty. Wish we had stayed with our original plan of outdoor dining Three overhead heaters made it too hot and uncomfortable. The food ( Greek salad with grilled chicken) was rather band, tasteless and overcooked. One companion had the Ceasar with chicken which she described the same way and one had the Eggplant stack which she said was excellent. 1 out of 3.

Very nice place.... loved the vibe..... great place to meet friends out. The Crab Rangoons were unbelievable.. I want to go back for more..... My wife loved the salmon meal, however the portion size for that price was small..... I had the fish & chips.... the batter wasn’t what I expected, kinda thick and not very flavorful... the fish itself was very good...

In these pandemic times it’s nice to find a restaurant with comfortable options for both indoor and outdoor dining. It helps when the restaurant has all the comfort foods you’d like, at reasonable prices, friendly service and great cocktails. This is the place to go when you’re looking for all of that.

It was great sitting out in the covered area! We love this restaurant. The prices on some items (wine $17 for a glass), and a few other things were a bit high, but it didn’t stop us from ordering them. We felt pretty safe 😊

Great Sunday dining option. Lively, busy youth oriented bar. Industrial decore with indoor and outdoor seating . Brunch menu had both breakfast and lunch items. The portions were small for the price. Over 2 dozen beers on tap mad the choice difficult. The wine was kind of expensive. If you plan to hang around for a couple of hours in the age of covid, be prepared to be reminded to wear your mask.

Food was delicious, asked for specific table location when I made the reservation and that was fulfilled which was appreciated (I love sitting in the booths next to the large windows and tonight we got to watch the sunset which was gorgeous). Waitress was great personality-wise, however my only complaint was that she never ONCE checked in on us (even though she walked by our table multiple times). We were probably sitting for close to ten mins before she came over to take our order, but we hadn’t even ordered drinks yet so I had to ask if we could order drinks and have a bit more time to decide on our food orders. We ordered apps and entrees, she never once checked in to see how our food was or if we needed anything. I spent quite awhile needing another beverage and she was no where to be found, we also had to end up asking a random employee walking by if we could get another napkin. Our experience and food was great so this definitely didn’t put a damper on our evening I just wish she was a bit more attentive. Regardless, I’ve been here many times and will continue to go back!

We were a party of four outdoor seating in back of restaurant, and right away the noise level was way too loud. We could barely hear one another speak. The waitress while very nice took awhile for us to order a beverage, and when they finally came it was even longer before we could order our meal. The food wasn’t as good as usual, and I always order the same dish. It was a bit chaotic. Unfortunately may be a awhile before we return.

The waitress was fabulous..one entree came out cold. Sent the entree back, never came out until table was finished with dinner. Manager did apologize when he brought out the hot entree. Seeing everyone was finished he should have offered dessert or taken off the dinner...instead we were charged twice for the initial cold dinner and then the second hot entree.
Not impressed with this location

Our waitress was good the only problem is when the servers brought our food out I was given the wrong burger and the person that got mine at our table was already eating it so I was stuck with a burger that I did not want and could only eat a small amount . Our waitress when informed of this did not offer me another burger.
