“Great late night menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

A very nice late nice menu selection. Lots of drinking options.

Staff very friendly and service, really quick (we had 7 of us, took maybe 15mins tops!)

Deff, will be back to try out some more options.

“Over priced and Under Staffed.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

We had group reservations for lunch but they were totally unprepared for us. They had to pull people out of the kitchen to slide tables together, etc. This was very time consuming for a group (22 persons) on a time schedule (that is why we called ahead for reservations). The one waitress was very good but there should have been more than one. Kitchen servicde was slow. If they didn't automatically give themselves an 18% gratuity they would have gotten nothing unless I was assured that it would only go to the overworked waitress. Place was set up like a 'sports bar' with TV's all over but there were only recaps and commercials playing on them. Fortunately, I brought a book to read and I would recomend the same for you.

“Odd Combination”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

Was recommended by someone from the area and was intrigued by the on line menu! Seemed to be bar type food menu spun into an higher end presentation with menu options like meatloaf, lobster Mac and cheese, gourmet burgers and such. Service was solid with a very friendly waiter that tried hard to win us over but the crowd was tough. They had a great drink menu with abundant micro offerings but unfortunately the one that many in our group ordered was not available which dragged out the process of getting a drink much longer than it needed to be, unnecessarily. Our appetizer order had wings that were unspectacular, crab dip that was excellent and pork sliders that were $3.25 a piece and ok at best.
For dinner I had the grouper special that had a undercooked piece of fish that had a very tasty creamy corn sauce served over rice Some had the meatloaf that was not special and one had the lobster feature that was reported to be pretty good. A few others had one of the gourmet burgers that were nothing special from any grill that you would go to and overhyped!
All in all our group of seven was not impressed for the attempt of creating a high end burger menu!
Sorry but they missed the mark with this group!

“Awesome food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

We dined here the first week it opened and have been back 5 or 6 times. Everything I have ordered have been great. We have had the hummus,crab dip, duck confit tostadas, and pork sliders on the appetizer menu. By far, my favorite meal is the fish tacos. I have had them 3 or 4 times and each time was slightly different and amazing. One time, they had two different slaws on them. We have also enjoyed the 420 burger, portobello burger, veggie pasta, the brined pork chops, quail special, six cheese mac-n-cheese and the lobster grilled cheese. The specials of the day on the chalkboard are usually amazing. They have introduced a charcuterie board with meats and cheeses that could be a meal. The restaurant is very close to home and we have never waited more than 5 or 10 minutes. We spent New Year's Eve there and had a great time.

“Great Restaurant - Love the taste!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

My wife and I tried this place out a couple of weeks ago. We were very impressed by the menu. They had a nice variety of items with not too many overwhelming selections. The taste of the food was incredible. Will definitely return.
