My friend and I split some of the bar food, and it was average at best. Not all that satisfying, and the portions were on the small side. The cocktail was tasty and had a fun presentation, and the mystery shot-and-beer deal is great. The service was also excellent, with the server accommodating the mystery beer to my own taste preferences. All in all? Good for drinks, but avoid the food.

Met a friend here to check this place out, and it seems like it doesn't know what it wants to be, at least not yet. That said, there was plenty of seating and it was a good place to grab a drink before dinner. My partner in crime is not a beer person, though the tap selection looked solid. Instead we opted for the Alice in Wonderland-themed cocktails. I had the Old-Fashioned which was very well-balanced. We also tried a cocktail with cucumber and vodka whose name escapes me that was perfectly tart. Almost wish I'd gotten that instead! Definitely a spot still finding its stride but give it time.
