Fried calamari with spicy peppers sums up the atmosphere. A great place for food and company in a lively - vibrant "neighborhood" bar and restaurant. Took advantage of the special turkey burger which was excellent (little light on the cranberry mayo- order extra!) compared very favorably with the regular burger ordered by one of the others at our table.

Happened by this place a bit by accident but I'm glad I did. The food was really good, and the waitress was awesome. The hog wings are a must.

I love their funky,eclectic style and I like the different styles of seating arrangements that they have from cozy corner booths to big high tops. 2. They have a good beer selection and decent wine... More

Just opened and what a great spot.. Younger southie croud... Steak with Thai noodles, steak fries, fried chicken with waffles and the special of the day, xcod with crab Rangoon. Can't wait to come back for the food never mind that the beer selection is excellent too. Very lively young crowd. Easy to give a great review.

Okay; so I've seen this place listed as a bar, grill, bistro, 'gastropub' (which somehow sounds like a place that gives you an uncomfortable stomach illness) ... For me - for us, really as my wife loves the place, too - it's a terrific neighborhood pub with excellent food, well-prepared, served by friendly folks - we've had Rob and Dawn... More
