    We used to come here way back in the beginning years ago when it first opened, and it was a fun lively place with good food. It has gone way downhill over the years: Terrible service. Our server forgot about us several times. In fact, it took almost 20 minutes for her to even get to our table to take her drink order and all we were getting was water. We felt bad she was so busy. It’s very loud in there, but it is a bar atmosphere so that’s to be expected. The food was awful. Overly flavored, heavy on the sauces, but I suppose that’s also typical of a bar.

    Great food, drinks and staff--a local jewel! Steak frites and OG burger are the best. They make an excellent paper plane and use big ice cubes...service is friendly, attentive, and efficient. Live music on the weekends--if too loud there's street and patio dining.

    We sat outside on the heated patio where the noise level was very manageable. (Inside was loud!) Our food and drinks were delicious and our server was amazing! I wish I could remember her name, but she was fantastic. She was there the second we needed anything, but gave us plenty of time to relax and enjoy ourselves. We really enjoyed our dinner.

    Thank you UNION. This was my second Easter at Union and it was perfect. We went early (with kids), there were Easter eggs for them to find, mimosas were flowing and food was good and fast. Thank you to our server Kevin
