Great place. When we visit our son, we go every time for the wings. The sauce is different and delicious with flavors for bourbon and cocoa and the perfect heat. They have blue cheese crumbles on top of them and served with delicious gorgonzola ranch...More

While this place can be loud the food is wonderful. They have vegetarian options. Love the salads as well as the adult grilled cheese sandwich. Nice beers on tap

We were headed to the Barrymore for an event and stopped in to Alchemy without a reservation with a group of 10. We didn't have much time and the kitchen made sure we got our food quickly. As usual, the food and drinks were great...More
