If you're looking for a great place downtown for happy hour, this is a great option! Great beer selections and happy hour options for appetizers. The view of Fountain Square can't be beaten especially in the winter.

It was interesting to find but upon arrival you were greeted with a warm smile and a beautiful atmosphere. The waiters were quick and the seafood was amazing. The fish was moist and perfectly seasoned. Great place for friends,special evenings or business dinners.
