The food was fantastic, service was wonderful from the host to the server. The menus have a variety of foods and drinks all with a unique spin on traditional favorites. Open table made it easy to get a seat in here. I highly recommend using it to guarantee a place.

Easter Brunch food took over 45 min, it was freezing inside and so loud couldn’t hear anything at table. Waffle was excellent, burrito and frittata were okay. I’ve been here before but this time was disappointing.

Had Brunch there with a few friends from work. This place has everything. Exactly what you would want from a good restaurant in Buffalo. The chef special frittata was the best I have ever had. We were a group of 7 girls and everyone raved about their food! The Bloody Mary did not disappoint. GO THERE! Cannot wait to go back for dinner food and drinks. Location is perfect!

I would not recommend the Caesar salad; my husband and I shared it and agreed it was the worst one we’ve ever had. There were four of us, and our entrees were good. Allegedly they serve a fish fry on Friday and Saturday, but that changed, but was not noted on the menu or online. Two of the four of us had planned on that. Our server, Courtney, and all staff were great!

Extremely loud, couldn’t hear anything. Had to constantly lean into the person that you wanted to talk to at the table. Could not hear the server for the specials. I get it’s a bar but with higher ceilings and wide open floor plan the sound just carries. Needs something to baffle or absorb the noise.

Had a reservation. Seated right away. Full house (with social distancing). Great service. Drinks came fast, kitchen was a little behind, but nothing painful. Drinks and apps kept us busy. Had the fried pickles and pretzel. Very good. Fish fry was tasty and filling. Love their fries!!

Great food, great service! I’d love to keep coming here on the patio with my friends. If there was any way to get a heater by the tables on patio, we could extend our outings into the cooler weather. If not, I’ll still get takeout for myself.

This is our favorite spot. The food is always amazing. We had burgers (both cooke perfectly) and the fries were fresh and hot. Do yourself a favor and get the garlic mayo for dipping - perfection.
