We were there for a sidewalk dining with our friends in September 2017 and enjoyed a lot. Location is perfect and service was good. We enjoyed the food and beer as well.

Our hotel downtown recommended this spot for great food, they were on point. Shrimp and quinoa was awesome. Service was top notch and a couple of local beers were great. Will definitely come back next time I'm in town.
