The food was so good here, we came back twice. The fish tacos are the bomb and the corn, black bean side dish was amazing!

We enjoyed the Charcuterie & Cheese Board, the flatbread wasn't as good, we had the one with apple which was cut thick and fell off the flatbread. We also enjoyed a couple of their in house brews. Lively bar atmosphere, not good for conversation

Kind of bummed that the menu had been changed and it didn’t seem to have the same atmosphere as it once had. Great if you’re into college sports and IPA’s.
