We had a greek salad, soups and a couple of appetizers. The staff was helpful in picking out a beer from their draughts.

Great place to get out of the cold and get a drink and warm food. I had the chicken pot pie and it was awesome. We also had French fries and pot stickers.

Great service at the bar - delicious wings and good beer selection. It can get crowded at lunch and when the lifts close.
