Make sure that you look the selections over before you go. The selection was incredible! I had the Cuban Sandwich. It was delicious. Presentation was a 10. Waitress was friendly and accommodating. Atmosphere was very nice. Highly recommend!

Took us until the second nite of trying to actually find this place. Once inside, bartenders were good, food was average. Nothing outstanding about this place. Great variety of beers.

The food menu always impresses, more sophisticated than your typical bar menu. Can't beat the bacon and gouda mussels. The number of beer taps is almost overwhelming, but no one is complaining
