On Monday I and a co-worker had the lettuce wrap it was a small amount. I didn't like the Asian Sauce but my co-worker liked it. I had Chicken & Waffles before very good. It's a nice place to set in the summertime.

Very slow and food presentation was horrible, overcooked and dry. The barmaid should Not be waiting tables. We had to pay extra at the parking meeting because we were there for over an hour!

Been here just once but this is now one of my favorite restaurants in the area. Lots of craft brews, a tapas-like menu, great overall menu selection and super friendly service. I especially liked the Szechuan calamari and tomato buratta.

My first visit here and I will never go down south again without stopping. Bartender Alan was friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. Did 4 small plates in lieu of wanting to try everything. Was the perfect amount to split with another. Great selection of beer on...More

After my commencement ceremony, I treated my family to the 501. Had heard good things about it and wanted to go somewhere downtown. Nice view of the University. Good food and awesome variety for a small place. Service was excellent. Parking was an issue.

The only thing I enjoyed was the atmosphere. It took a while to be addressed by anyone and then by the time we were greeted we we're told there would be a wait. There was no seating for waiting. Everything from the first interaction with...More
