Had dinner here with some friends. There are lots of seating options: bar, downstairs, upstairs, and sidewalk tables. The hamburgers were recommended. Several of us had them including one person who got the veggie burger patty option. All were excellent. I got a salad for...More

I wouldn't rave about their food (at least what we ordered) but the busy lively dinner atmosphere was fun. It was across the street from our hotel so we waited about 20 minutes to be seated. Our waitress was nice and we have no complaints...More

Had dinner. Was just so-so ok. There are better places near by. Loud, bustly, cramped, wait staff ok. We also have since been to Newtowne Grill which is much better and just down the street.

We went because of good selection of gluten free options. Lunchtime was casual and quiet. Dinner was hectic and very noisy. The steak tips at dinner were very tough but the rest was very good.

Good beer and good food. We needed a late night meal that was walking distance to our hotel. Fortunately this place was close. Menu had a variety of options. Both items we ordered were done very well. And, they had good beer :)

We had a delicious Easter brunch here! Food was wonderful and creative, but not crazy. Fresh ingredients. Good atmosphere inside and outside. Full bar. We will be back for Sunday brunch. Hope their bananas arrive on time.
