First, don’t go for a Sunday brunch, there isn’t one. We anticipated the carving station, pastries and a variety of eggs type breakfast options and salads. Instead we are handed menus. My basic breakfast was served with less heat on it than the room. Husbands breakfast burrito was cool too but he didn’t mind.
The waitress was very cheerful - which is the only reason we stayed. It wasn’t her fault the open table description was over a YEAR outdated. Definitely not a place that is open early for a “brunch crowd”. There were only three tables of people there and the bar (that’s in the center of the restaurant) was empty.
We ate and left all with in an hour.

Made reservations for 10pm as we both work late. Arrived at 10pm no host and no signage telling us to seat ourselves. They were turning the restaurant into a night club as we sat, after I had asked an employee of we seat ourselves and if they still serving food, he said yes take a seat good served till 11p. We waited after we seated and nobody stopped by after about 7 or 8 minutes so I stopped someone.he said oh yes. I will be right back. He hurried back with menus(for brunch). We ordered cocktails from the menu(not the same as online). Cocktails arrived in a out 6mins. We had already ordered food took about 12mins. Overall it was good. Food was not outstanding. I would go again but during morning dining hours. To give them another try. As I feel everyone was to busy getting ready for the DJ.

My wife and I frequent the loop and usually we have a great time and enjoy the service. The restaurant was not very busy at the time we were there but it was still difficult at times to find our server. We had to ask for refills a few times.

The reason for my low review is not based on the foods. It’s based on something I heard from one of the managers while he was at the table across from ours. He was telling the customers that he is buying dessert for all of the mothers since it’s mother’s day. He said he was extending this to all mothers.

I found it weird that it wasn’t offered to my wife. We were there celebrating Mother’s Day and even had our daughter with us. I would be interested to hear the reason why it was offered to them but not us.

I love this great little place. The menu has a good variety for everyone to find something they like and lots of TV's with every sport you can find for fun. They have recently remodeled and it fits in the neighborhood with a great look. I love their salads and our recent breakfast selection with Bloody Mary's was great. Can't wait for the outdoor patio to open up too!

Met a colleague for lunch. Was impressed with the modern updates to the restaurant since the last time I was in there. The only blemish on the visit was the garlic fries. Either they diced the fries into little fry nugget/pieces, else I received the bottom of the basket and if that was the case - shame on the kitchen manager, shame on the expo person, and shame on the server. Shame on me for not bringing it to their attention - yeah, but what's a hangry guy to do?

The restaurant is beautifully designed and the location is great. We have been there 2 times, and each time, we had really poor service. Items from our orders were missing and foods did not come out at the same time. When they finally arrived, they were cold. The manager gave us some discount the first time, but this time no one was responsive enough to hear what we had to say. For a restaurant in North Loop, it was far from tasteful to have creamer-cups!! Why not pour cream in a creamer and present it. No spoon, few sugar packets, no ketchup, coffee was either cold or too bitter. It felt we had to ask for every single item. Food, if not cold, is good. But we are not going back because of poor service.

Was there on a Friday for a 40th b-day celebration. Service was very slow (although it was a Friday, so maybe not a surprise, but haven't had that issue with other restaurants in North Loop). Food was excellent, drinks were great. Didn't receive much attention from our server (e.g. waters were never refilled, no acknowledgement if they were super busy to account for the slow/lacking service).

Not a place for a special occasion - but fine for a regular dinner/drinks if you're not in a rush. Again, food was excellent, but service was very much lacking.

It was a busy afternoon with the Vikings in town and the place was crowded, the waitress forgot a couple things and had to be reminded. The food was good but the loopy juicy was raw in the middle. The chicken sandwich was good and we enjoyed the fries. All in all it was a fun atmosphere before the game.

The recent renovation has really brightened the space. A few TVs have been removed to lessen the sports bar vibe. The revamp of the menu to include breakfast was really well done. The breakfast menu is a real winner. A lot of options without feeling overwhelming. Fried Chicken and biscuits were excellent.

5 of us went for Mothers Day brunch and it was great! My in laws had never been and seemed to LOVE their options. 5 of us had the brunch including a few cocktails and the bill was less then $120.00. Everyone Beas full for the rest of the day. I can definitely recommend the brunch. It includes prime rib, delicious omelettes, pastries, fresh fruit, salads. waffles and delicious sides. Kids are welcome.
