    Love that the menu changes. If the aerated cheesecake or the rabbit saddle w/ sausage comes back, order it! Brunch is delicious, the live music makes it very unique, the building is a gem.

    Named for a lyric in the Replacements anthem "Left of the Dial," the Playing Makeup, Wearing a Guitar is a riff on a classic Manhattan, made with carbonated bourbon and cola-cherry bitters. It rocks. Read more

    The opposites-attract concept has never been so deliciously extreme. An eclair with chewy maple-glazed pork is dressed with creamy, sharp cheddar cheese & stuffed between slices of a sugary bun! Read more

    Fantastic, albeit pricy, cocktails. Beware the strength of the cocktails! All proceeds from the cover charge go to the musician, which is a laudable model. Fantastic ambience—perfect for dates.

    The wings are frenched to resemble lollipops, cured in a mixed-spice dry rub, smoked over hickory wood, then flash-fried and garnished with green-tomato chutney and smoky barbecued carrots. Read more

    The concept behind the new Icehouse was to create a fun-for-all restaurant and music venue on Eat Street, with a chef-driven menu of imaginative, elevated small plates. Read more

    Colonel Mustard!  Drink menu was outstanding.  I loved the For His Majesty.  The Salty Caramel Macarons are to die for.  I want to go back for the 10 course meal at the chef's bar.

    Thursday nights they have a surprise five dollar food item and three dollar drink so be sure to ask what it is that night! Strong drinks so you get your money's worth. Great service-Tim is the man.

    Splurge and get the $10 foie gras add-on to the burger. Even if it's lunch time. It was the best burger I have ever had!!

    Good selection of whisky and cocktails. Food is spendy and if it’s busy on a show night you’re sort of fending for yourself. Come for the outstanding music.

    Voted City Pages top ten craft cocktail bars! The drink menu goes on for days, with every sort of classy cocktail, from frilly girly drinks to the Robert Mitchum whiskey collection.

    The trio of cured salmon is fresh, silky, and served with a kick-ass dill, rye, and anchovy marinade. Be sure to order the bourbon caramel sundae to top things off. Read more

    The pork cutlet at lunch is amazing! Little apple slaw and brie. I do no bun and salad instead, but it's still delicious! Great brunch on weekends too!

    A Negroni, Aperol in place of the Campari. Talk to the bartender about Cocchi Vermouth di Torino vs Kina Lillet.

    The craft they put into the space, the food and the drinks is amazing. Grab a seat on the far side of the balcony for the best seat in the house.

    Excellent environment. Great setup. Creative drinks. Slow service, but the blame goes to the waitress, not establishment. Certainly recommended.

    Olives: you get about 70-80 really good olives. Most still have pits. The marinate is great.

    The Satan Laughs and Spreads His Wings is delicious for sipping. Stronger than it tastes, for sure.. You'll feel it in the morning if you have too many!
