Top notch food, quick service, it was a big portion and very good value, less than $15 for a burger, fries and drink. Its very central and would highly recommend.

Stopped in for lunch. They had a handful of tables outside, but we opted for inside. Decent amount of seating, but tight. Great beer selection (try a flight) and food was wonderful. Not cheap, but we felt it was worth it.

Really enjoyed a dinner - nice flavor. Good selection of craft beer on tap. Option to get sample flight of 5 beers. Music is 80's & 90's themed. They offer eating on the sidewalk but there is a bit of traffic from the red light....More

We had a very nice time on the terrace of the race street cafe! We enjoyed wine and beers accompanied with classic burgers that were very tasteful and more important very generous plate! I recommend!

This was my first time at Race Street Cage and I am upset that I haven't visited earlier. I love the atmosphere of the dim lighting and the music was a nice variety. I reviewed the draft beer list and it was a nice selection....More

But, I had an overall disappointing dinner. First off, the faro/spinach salad I had wasn't worth the 12.50 or so I paid ... along with a ten dollar drink, I was already up to 25.00 bucks for a mediocre meal. The server was distant and...More

The food was good and different than you local bacon and eggs place. They have outside seating of 3 tables. However you are on the sidewalk next to a busy street. The portions were small but good enough to start the day. I would give...More

Not officially on the menu, but they will make grilled cheese and maybe a few other dishes that are kid-friendly.
