Very traditional neighborhood pub with decent selection of sandwiches and salads. The spicy chicken sandwich was delicious!

Decent food and drink, but it was WAY too loud in here. I think it was probably because three large tables were indulging in the bottomless mimosas, but still, everything echoed since it's a large open space with tall ceilings. Waitress was great and the food was pretty good.

We went on a Saturday, and ordered a pizza which they couldn’t make. That was disappointing, but otherwise a cool looking bar.

There was nothing extraordinary about the menu, standard American pub food. But the execution was outstanding. The sweet potato waffle fries were some of the best I have had, the burgers were tasty and the Chicago steak sandwich was delicious. Music was louder than I prefer for dining, but our server was attentive bring water refills before we even had to ask.

Bottomless Mimosas are pre-made (more juice than champagne)... Just purchase a bottle (25 dollars) and get OJ on the side...

The omelet had potential but had a burnt grill overcooked taste to it.... It tasted like they don’t throughly clean or wipe down grill in between cooking orders..

I had to send my beignets because there was a piece of a plastic utensil cooked into my beignets.. Thank goodness I bit into it before swallowing the beignet.

Good parts: service was good.. waitress was extremely accommodating and they removed the beignets from my final bill.

It was a great brunch spot. The breakfast skillets were incredible, the bottomless mimosas were truly bottomless, and the servers were attentive, polite, and overall just good. The only thing that was unfortunate - which isn't Weather Mark's fault by any means - is that it was a bit empty. But again, great spot, felt very local and homey and I love that.

Salmon was dry and over cooked. No rye bread for the patty melt which taste like a hamburger on white toast. Appetizers were good. We had fried cauliflower and spring rolls. Cocktails were weak. Server was pleasant.

We loved it! What a nice change for us to go to a restaurant. They had the front garage door open...so, it felt like a patio. The service was terrific..and the owner takes great pride in his restaurant. He was hands on the entire time. The hummus tri-plate appetizer is terrific...and the tuna steak sandwich is wonderful!

We made reservations for a restaurant that was not open. They had no communication posted anywhere stating that they would not be open either. Their website said they open at 10am. We got there at 11:15 for our reservation and it was closed! I do understand things happen, and with covid still affecting the world it’s hard to run a business. On the other hand social media is at her finger tips, heck even a sign on the door would have been better than nothing.
