Ambiance is fun and there are a ton of options on the menu. The drinks were delicious. Our server was inattentive though and for a speakeasy, the music was louder than expected.

Oyster shooters- no beuno. Fritters- yummy! Crab cakes- fishy tasting. Nachos- yum!! Chicken fingers- very good.

Service was great when we arrived, but then we were forgotten. Ordered decaf coffee at the end of the meal and it never came.

Great space and ambience though!

They welcomed us in short notice and were friendly through the night. Great weekend scene.

This place was very cute and seemed very promising. Unfortunately both of my drinks (alcoholic and not) were not good and I didn't end up drinking them. The chicken wings were rubbery, and most of the food was not great. The curried cauliflower was the only saving grace but unfortunately it could not make up for the rest of the meal.

Love the ambiance! Great overall experience. Excellent service. The fried pickles were awesome! The Backdoor Manhattan was very tasty. The Woodchuck cider was good. The Truffle Burger with bacon was most excellent. The Backdoor burger was delicious. Finally, the rum and coke was also very tasty. Would have liked it much better if we weren't freezing from the a.c. exhaust above us. Definitely recommend!

We had an amazing evening here!! The food was awesome, we had a booth for the evening (that he even saved for us while we went for a walk after checking in for our reservation), and the drinks were absolutely delicious! We asked him to make something with bourbon and grapefruit, and it was everything we could've hoped for and more. The bartender was also super friendly. We would definitely go back!!
