The food was good even though I asked for my burger cooked medium and it came out well- done. The fries were good and wo was the fried pickles. But the best part was the pulled pork - delicious! However the service was terrible. I had to wait for everything even to pay. I knew it was time to leave... More

Plenty of cocktail options with a ton beers on tap. Staff very friendly and attentive. When we first got there a live band was playing mid day which... More

Great tap beer list, shown on screens which was pretty cool. They changed tv to our game and served us a great pulled pork quesadilla, what more could we want? Also had live music on a Saturday afternoon which was nice. The only negative is that it is a bit dark and dreary inside.

This bar plays a lot of 90s music and has a great drink selection. We love visiting every time we are in the city. It's laid back and has a great staff.

Staff was attentive, courteous but not hovering. The food was, just excellent. Minestrone was the soup of the day and it was the best I've ever had that wasn't homemade by a Mediterranean cook. They have an interesting mix of burgers, sandwiches, and wraps. We had a grilled cheese with gruyère and basil, and a seasonal wrap with Chicken and... More

We ducked in to get out of the unbearable heat and checked out the menu...they were just getting ready to open. They had a wide variety of burgers, wraps and sandwiches, and cold beer, so we stayed. Live music was starting by the end of our meal.
