Can all the way out on a Wednesday and they’re closed at 7:00 PM. Honestly the place doesn’t look great anyway. I attached photos of the front and immediate area. Yu can’t always trust the reviews.

Great little craft beer bar with enormous burgers and more chips than you can eay! Lovely attentive service, the owner gives you a taste of his on tap beers so you can choose which one you want.

Started a food tour at this spot. How fun! Excellent drinks and great service. Entering into the bar area was a nice surprise - large, open areas for groups to sit and meet new people.
