Our table of 4 shared oysters, chicken wings, feta cheese bowl, wasabi deviled egg, and a pretzel - followed up with a couple of smash burgers. Everything was delicious right down to the dips and sauces that are served with them. We didn’t know it was trivia night but we joined in and had a lot of fun despite doing badly. Great service and drinks to make it an overall great experience. Oh - the cheese cake and coffee were also very good.
