Belly up to the copper-top bar at this bi-level gastropub and sample the 30 craft drafts via beer flight, or dig through the barkeeps' whiskey library of over 60 bottles of the brown stuff. Tufted red-leather booths offer cozy seating for a full meal—the elevated bar fare includes dishes like truffled macaroni and cheese, gruyere-smothered burgers, and sticky hot wings.

Came here on a Saturday night around 8. They were able to seat us right away at a picnic table on the roof just for a drink. Really nice little outdoor area up there. Cute spot!


Meh. 


I came here for a friend's birthday and was pretty disappointed.  When we arrived, it was packed with the happy hour crowd.  Our party was 8 people and the hostess refused to sit us until we were all there, so we stood at the front door vestibule being pushed around by the people walking in and out.  When the remainder of our party arrived, we were finally seated.  


We immediately put in an order for drinks and apps.  Popcorn shrimp and guacamole were decent.  The cheese plate was so random.  The cheese was dyed green and purple. There were pieces of what looked like the OceanSpray canned cranberry sauce and the cheese to bread ratio was totally off, a charcuter-no-no. I ordered the buffalo chicken salad which was swimming in bleu cheese dressing.  Overall, not impressed with the food. 


On top of the meh food, the restaurant was very warm.  We were all sweating! We were sitting on napkins because the leather bar stools made us sweat even more.  Most likely, won't be back.  


Drink of choice: good ole H20 to re-hydrate myself from how much I was sweating 




loved their brunch! i went with 5 other people and their servers were awesome and attentive. they have 2-hour bottomless mimosas, bloody marys and house pilsners for a fairly reasonable price and they let you switch between drinks if you'd like.
