    Great entrees, whisky choices, and service! Jeff and Brian made sure we were very well taken care of with our large party. We'd come back again in a heartbeat. Cool neighborhood as well!

    It is a wonderful place for a breakfast. I love their "Benny" sausage dish. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Well designed space. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

    The tips on here are spot on! Maple bacon popcorn. Pork Belly was delish! Brussels hash also a winner for a green.

    We've lived in LIC for the past two years and had never been here. We missed out. Everything we had was awesome. Maple bacon popcorn is a must.

    The pulled pork grits are a little too dry, but the much tipped mushroom toast is great and the popcorn is amazing.

    Brunch is so yummy! The main entrees are okay, but the sides-particularly the cheesy grits and bacon- are excellent. Only $5 for a plate of bacon too! What a deal! Will definitely be going back

    BLT is overpriced. Very disappointing. Store-bought white bread can not be the foundation of a $14 sandwich.

    Try the cheeses - the smoked ricotta is amazing as are the pickled peaches. And at lunch, they have a $5 glass of gruener veltliner. Definitely one of my LIC faves!!!

    AVOID lunch! I dine here often and love it. However, the phrase "3 strikes you're out" rings true for horrible lunch service. It's always the same waiter/bartender, now dubbed moody mustache.
