I've had most of the food on the menu since the menu is quite limited. Most of the food has been good - one of the chicken dishes was horrible, but the burgers are really good. The offer 3 pizza choices, but the best option...More

Met with a bunch of my friends here and the food was fantastic. Had some appetizers and they were delicious. The music is a little loud like it is supposed to be in a place like this. Server was friendly and very courteous.

Came here recently for some drinks and dancing! The music is usually pretty good as is the crowd and I always have a blast here- enjoy!

Great brunch offerings from Mexican Breakfast Burrito to Duck Eggs Benny. A wide selection of craft beers on tap. Only downside is there is not any outside seating.

Brought my brother in law in town from BC and a gourmet chef. What a disappointment. Firstly they cancelled my reservation by mistake and when I noted their error nothing was done when arrived to compensate. Service was ok. Cheese and charcuterie board was pretty...More

We went for a Summerlicious dinner last night, and hd a really great experience. The food was great, service was fantastic - present and supportive without being obnoxious - and we loved the overall vibe of the place. They very deliberately avoid the current pop...More
