This is a fun place to go for both locals & visitors. A diverse, interesting menu, full bar, cool vibe & live music most nights. They charge for bread, which is odd, but it’s bottomless & the pesto dipping sauce and warm bread is delish!

Located in the heart of Leucadia, this fusion bar and restaurant offers delicious entrees, salads and craft beers and drinks. Plenty of seating inside and outside. Live music most every night. Great happy hour with small plates and beer, wine and margaritas. Street parking only.

Yes, they do! During our visit, a friend with us inquired about gluten-free items. My apologies, but I do not recall what specific menu items were gluten-free.
