    So my mom best friends and I work close to there. So we go there to meat for lunch. The wings, burgers and onion rings are amazing. Disclaimer I hate onion rings but these were so good. The drinks are strong. Every-time I go there it’s not as much people but if it is the noise level is good. The bartenders always checking in. Margaritas are strong 🥂🍹

    Was looking for a casual restaurant before heading to a play Sunday evening. The fireplace was warm and cozy and the food was excellent. Loved the fresh ingredients in their bean tacos, the salads and the vegetable egg rolls. Delightful experience.

    Although they did not recognize my face or my name (lol), it was a nice place. High and low tables provide for a nice atmosphere. Mac and Cheese was yummy for app, mini burgers were mini alright, breakfast tacos were very good and would make a great app for the table - they are mini and you get many of them. Server was nice and prompt. Overall, I would recommend.

    This was my first time here and I was shocked about the inside. There were very few regular tables. It looked more like a lounge than a restaurant & there was hardly anyone there. But, my burger was great and the onion rings were good. Our waitress was really attentive and nice so it was a good meal. I was just surprised by how it looked more like a lounge than a restaurant. We were there for lunch so maybe it comes alive & fills up during the evening hours.

    Faces and NamesResponded on May 28, 2019Thank you for your feedback, Keta! Glad to hear you had a good time with us. Definitely come back to see how vibrant the lounge is in the evening!

    Our waiter/host Adam was the hilarious! He kept us laughing all evening and provided outstanding service. Food was excellent, good selection of drinks and a very generous pour on the whiskey. Couldn’t have found a better place. They even pulled together several tables to accommodate our 10 person last minute group.

    We went to Faces and Names before a Sunday matinee. The interior is welcoming and warm. We sat at a table near the fireplace (was not lit as it gets too hot). Nice and quiet - allowed us to have a conversation. Food was good. Simple pub food but good. Our server Jane was charming. Nice choice for a bite and drink before of after the theater.
