Stopped in for a drink while in town just to check it out. Nice place very clean, friendly staff and a good atmosphere. I came highly recommended by friends who live in the area and it was easy to see why.

I've been there several times for Beer 101 and just eating at the restaurant and have yet to be disappointed. The live music is nice to see also.

My roommates and I came here twice in University. The first time when it had just opened up for drinks, entertainment and it was a great environment. The second time was for apps and drinks and this was the first time trying their food and it was amazing!

Not the same place it used to be. Mediocre service. No interaction at all with the staff. Made me feel like I shouldn't be there.

Trivia nights Monday and Tuesday are super fun but they tend to be super busy. Food is on the pricey side but totally worth it. My sister and I tend to share and they don't charge extra for sharing which I really appreciate and we make a point to go there when neither of us want a huge meal.
