I've been there several times for Beer 101 and just eating at the restaurant and have yet to be disappointed. The live music is nice to see also.

My roommates and I came here twice in University. The first time when it had just opened up for drinks, entertainment and it was a great environment. The second time was for apps and drinks and this was the first time trying their food and it was amazing!

Not the same place it used to be. Mediocre service. No interaction at all with the staff. Made me feel like I shouldn't be there.

Had our staff Xmas party here in the private top floor room last year. Everyone there had a great time. Staff were very attentive and the trivial pursuit game they organized was a blast! Ended the night downstairs rocking to some live music.
