Cool place, relaxed atmosphere. Several people raved about the burgers but didn't live up to the hype and definitely overpriced for a burger. Did not look like any of the pictures we saw of the burgers. Everything else we had was great. Brussell sprouts as...More

A great place for a birthday celebration. Fantastic selection of beers. Truffle popcorn was inventive and delicious as were the bacon wrapped dates. The beef sliders were flavorful but the au jus was overwhelming which resulted in drenched soggy buns. The waitress was extremely friendly...More

Stopped in for a quick dinner. Service was slow and the server seemed to be busy elsewhere, not certain where as it's a smaller place. Great selection of beers, no drink specials. Flite of beers seemed a little pricey. I had the Roast Beef Sliders...More

An excellent selection of beers on tap! The food menu was limited, but the burger I had was better then the regular bar burger. Staff was helpful, but seemed to congregate more around the regular customers.
