Great bar & restaurant. Easy to get in since it is a large place and nice beer selection made here. Had the Mediterranean pasta & side salad which was very good. Have also had pizza here and thought it was quite tasty.

Nice place downtown knoxville. More a large bar that serves food. Better quality than you would expect. Fresh made guacamole :). Servers were good and food came out quick. Wide selection of food. Just a fun place with decent food.
