We were trying to find an ‘adult’ restaurant in this college focused town and this was a wonderful surprise. The decor was upscale and the food was imaginative and delicious. Their bar is well stocked and top drawer! We highly recommend for an evening out.

They have a barrel aged Manhattan that is AMAZING! Their happy hour is pretty good. Cocktails are around $10 each but happy hour is 25% off and they have good appetizers on the happy hour menu. HA! That was a lot of "happy hours"
