Stopped in for dinner at the recommendation of a friend. The food was plentiful and very tasty, highly recommended. The pumpkin beer was interesting, would definitely try it again. A really nice chill spot to relax and have a meal or just a drink.

The food was average, the service was good but the waiter wasn't too friendly. The atmosphere was lovely though. Its a great place to meet up with friends and have a drink.

Great service. Lively, fun, funky environment. And great food as well. Our group of 5 included my wife and I, our 6 year old daughter, our 5 year old son, and my Mom.

Didnt eat there, but enjoyed a beverage - one of many as they have quite an extensive drinks menu. Great vibe, young crowd, great staff!

I think my title says it all. Just don't bother. Cold food, very rude waiter and quite shoddy place over all. Thanks but no thanks.
