Went there on a burger and band night. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food and band were fine. Just thought it was very expensive for what you got. Would not return.

We did not realize it is outdoor eating until we arrived. Burgers, grilled cheese, and soup were all great. Plenty of picnic tables even on a sunny Saturday with live music. Seemed to be a lot of locals there with children, so it is obviously...More
