Got off to a rocky start. They had no servers for the tables. However, once we go someone to attend to us, the service was good. I would def go back as the food was quite good.

WE made a reservation via OT, but the restaurant was closed for a private party. The hostess simply turned us away without even an apology.

It's a nice place but the lunch menu isn't really creative or deep. And pricy. There were 3-5 options and frankly.... not that ideal. Beer and cocktail list was great. Staff was quick too.

Did not know what to expect with the new management but was pleasantly surprised. Service was quick, even though I think we were the only table there, everyone else was at the bar. Good atmosphere. Drinks were made well, big fan of the Moscow Mule. It was huge!

My boyfriend and I were so disappointed in this place. We drove all the way there from Acton only to have to leave because the noise level was so extremely loud and the TVs were on full blast and catered to a college football crowd.
We were the only ones there not part of the football crowd. We tried to call ahead and no one answered the phone and no voicemail greeting. It would of been nice to hear a recorded message that it's college football night so we didn't have to waste our time driving down

When I got there the noise level was so high that I couldn't talk with the restaurant staff. It was louder then a night club or a concert. In the end I had to leave before I could try the food. Frankly, I don't know what they were thinking. They did have a football game on, but so did every other restaurant and bar in the area, and none of the ones I looked in were anywhere near as offensively loud.

Popped in for a quick bite. Loved the beer selection and food was delicious. Super friendly staff too. Nice work!

The crab in the BLT was a bit tough, but the rest of the sandwich was tasty, and the fries were very good.

Fantastic Spot & great after work crowd. The new owners have turned this place around. Great craft beer, cocktails & new menus.

Comfortable atmosphere and seating, friendly staff, good food (try the fried brie appetizer) and drinks. Will be back again!
