We visited with family for a brunch. We were seated upstairs and had two servers. Neither provided a name nor were overly friendly. The food was quite good or my score would be lower. The place has a nice atmosphere but needs personality.

My husband, sister & I had late lunch here this weekend. Yummy food & good service! Cool, laid back pub vibe. Tapas style plates. Tried the sliders, shrimp & grits and grilled cheese with tomato soup. Everything was yummy & good beer selection too!

This restaurant has a pub-like feel, with dining areas and bars both on the ground floor and upstairs. We tried 4 of the tapas-style dishes. The steak skewers were very tasty although each one had a small fatty piece. The sliders were also good although...More
