Decent restaurant. On King Street which is full of restaura­­­nts. We had nice bu­r­gers and good pa­st­a. Even though it was meant to be the di­nn­er menu, they let us choose from the lun­ch menu. Good ch­oice of craft beers. Good waitress.

I have been there before years ago. The food is still good but the menu is still the same. Maybe it was an off night but the service was terrible. 15 mins to order a drink, incomplete menus. There are better options nearby.
