    We were going to sit outside but music was loud. So we went inside but still very loud, hard to talk. Also, very disappointed in brussel sprouts, which we love there, they were very tough.

    Tortellini with grilled chicken was wonderful. The crab cakes were a bit dry but in all fairness we didn’t get the aoli on it so there is that. Staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. Service was great. I’d definitely go back.

    Upstairs seating was lovely and not loud at all. Service was great, our server seemed to truly care about our experience. Our orders were a burger and tacos with flank steak. The tacos were outstanding and the burger was classically good. Regular Margarita was really, really good.

    We were seated upstairs to celebrate my daughter's graduation from Rutgers. It turned out to be an intimate setting with a very attentive Andrew serving. We were able to easily talk with each other because it was not very loud and we enjoyed the variety and quality of beers. Andrew made the afternoon extra special - he was fantastic!

    Had a couple of burgers before a show at the state theatre. Very good! I’m so glad we tried it. The beer was ok. I’m not a big fan though and probably should have had wine or a mixed drink.

    Unsure if staff was just overloaded but felt a bit ‘forgotten’ throughout. One meal was missed. Food was pretty good. I’d go back but would hope for a bit better experience for the price.

    somethign happened with our order.... I don't know if the server forgot it or if the kitchen failed to notice it? but one persons mac and cheese was dried out and the two orders of chicken piccata were rubbery, like they sat too long under a heat lamp. Usually the place is great!

    Food was delicious, restaurant was quiet and patrons were spread out. Reasonable prices for portion size and flavor. Service was a little slow, as to be expected with short staffing due to pandemic.
