    First time eating here outside of brunch. The menu was quite limited and many items were unavailable so it made ordering difficult.

    Small menu but food is delicious. Disappointing that an item we craved was sold out – and we had an early (6:00) reservation. Our server was fabulous and we had a great time. But for the love of gawd and all patrons, replace those torturous patio chairs!

    Great spot, nice patio, and fantastic staff! Cocktails were great, unique, out of the ordinary, but a bit pricey (average $17). Had the Fried Chicken sandwich. Was good but didn't blow me away. Would recommend for small groups of friends, dates, etc. Very lively on a Friday night, as one would expect.

    We had an amazing time at this bar! The hosts and servers were fantastic and so was the food! We happened to be there during an event and it didn’t disappoint. We would definitely come back another time!! 😁🍻

    Kelly was our server and she was amazing! She was attentive, and super sweet. I brought my friend here for brunch and I ordered the eggs bunny (vegetarian with avocado instead of bacon) and it was delicious. The coffee was really good! We were there at 11:15am so had the whole place to ourselves! People didn’t start arriving until later. The price of the food was reasonable as well. I will definitely be back!

    Two other tables, but the server forgot about us. Waited 25 minutes for one drink while everyone else at my table received drinks. Food was not good. Portions were tiny for the price.

    Always have an amazing time at D&T and this truly was! Mimosas and a delicious brunch in the winter on a heated patio sitting cozy by the fire? Perfect.

    I had a great time in this place in the summer, so I wanted to see how it would be during the winter. Turns out it was just as great, thanks for the great service and quality food/drinks.

    Nice spot, seated at a cute spot in the corner. Best part was the waiter - I wish I knew his name - he was funny and quirky and fast and on top of things, really really good. Would definitely go back based on him alone, they are lucky to have him!

    The service and ambiance was good. Cocktails were alright. The food is really boring and not very appetizing. I’ve had dinner twice there now, and both times I’ve regretted it. Would go back for a drink only.
