The food was excellent. I do not drink, but my friends enjoyed the Chimay, once they got over the $30 sticker shock.

10 pages of beers. Great gumbo. Sat at the bar and had great convos with the bartender and regulars. Definitely worthwhile when you're in SLC.

This place was packed but got people seated rather quickly. We had great food options and the total bill was shockingly reasonable. I will be back.
