The place is nice and bigger than it looks. We were seated fast. The servers were young and attentive and the order came out fast. The menu is small but all we have was tasty and with a twist (avocado deviled eggs, fish sandwich, curry soup and fish tacos). Portions are big and on the expensive side for this type... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant which looks rather nondescript from the outside. It's all done up in a contemporary decor, with plastic chairs and colorful skateboards on the walls. Let the casual decor not sway you from the menu: it's seriously good food! I mean even for a picky vegetarian (cauliflower steak anyone?). The service was excellent and... More

The only thing I can say is avoid this place. Over cooked meal. No taste. Let no wait with no one in the place (clue #1).

Try the Dr. Pepper ribs and you will be hooked....and also the varieties of deviled eggs. Convenient location in downtown, and a spare modern decor. Good service.

This used to be our favorite place. Not so sure anymore after most recent visit. Menu has changed - now geared more towards simplicity/ sports bar menu with very few choices for regular dinner. Definitely check the menu before going, otherwise you maybe disappointed. However, the most disappointing part was the service. The servers were either new or completely overwhelmed... More

The décor is plain and could be described as stark but the specialty - the ribs are out of this world- they literally melt in your mouth

I live very close to this restaurant so I yearned to love it! In my imagination it would be a place I could go for a drink after work and grab a quick delicious meal from time to time. Unfortunately this has not been the reality. The staff is rude, inattentive, and service is less than stellar. During one of... More

This is an ecletic restaurant with good food and good presentation but took a long time to get lunch and the portions were very small for the price. The taste was truthfully good but not sure worth the wait and price. The menu is interesting with odd choices. The bartender was exceptionally thoughtful and talkative. They had very good drink...

Wow...this place has gone downhill fast. We have been here more than 10 times in the last year...initially it was great but each visit saw it get a little worse. Last night was awful and we won't be back. The food was not good. The steak was way over cooked (to their defense, they never even asked how WE wanted... More
