Not impressed at all. The prices were too high for the drinks and food which were average in value. Also, unless you like LGBT gender fluid establishments then you will not like the atmosphere.

This is the best food that we had the whole time we were in America. The red pepper soup was delicious as was my lobster creole with risotto. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food choices and the service was excellent. What a change from the usual American fare of steak, chicken, pizza all with fries. Highly recommended.

Some of the food combinations seemed a bit strange but what we orderd treated great. We started off with the shrimp and grits, it tasted great but the cinnamon flavor in the grits was not what we were expecting. My husband orderd the filet mignon while I orderd the pork cheeks. The pork cheeks just melted, I could've eaten it... More

What an amazing place. I was taken here for my 55th birthday and everything was amazing. Very eclectic experience. While a lounge and restaurant the food is upscale without the price. Servers were attentive and very willing to make suggestions of places to go or things to explore. I hope you enjoy the pictures below. I will be returning to... More

Great mix of historic and eclectic to produce a great atmosphere. We sat at the bar as we like to do and received friendly service from the helpful bar staff. The drink list is impressive and food was very good

We had the two piece cheese plate and caprese salad. The cheese plate had a tablespoon of brie and a tablespoon and a half of bleu cheese with candied figs, toast points and grapes. It was delicious but not worth the price. The caprese salad had a healthy amount of tomatoes and cheese but the balsamic glaze was a series... More

I really enjoyed hanging out in this eclectic bar and for an extra bonus in the summer you have to try the roof top bar Sky Prairie.
