Went for an early lunch, so not a very festive atmosphere at that time of day. Still, there was a steady stream of people ordering lunch. The fish tacos were absolutely amazing, and, at $4 each, you'll want at least two. Great local root beer...More

I got takeout while in town for business - it was okay. There were several things on the menu I'd like to try; wish I had more time in town. Interesting environment.

Love this place!!!! My dogs can play in the dog park; my husband can sample as many beers as he wants, and I can get good quality somewhat-healthy food. Win-win-win!!

Sustainable, organic, local -- great spot for lunch, with a play-yard for kids (a wonderful way to keep our highly-active 16-mo-old grandson busy). We opted for outdoor (covered) seating. Kale Avocado Spinach salad was a generous serving; tacos (fish, shrimp) were great.
