    Service was great; waitress was friendly. Really enjoyed our cocktails (fathers g&t). Grilled cheese was good with soup of the day (mushroom Brie).

    Convenient downtown location with a nice modern open space upstairs to hang out with friends. Decent music selection with a mature weekend crowd. Not overly crowded. Good selection of beverages.

    Every time I come here I feel increasingly off-put by most of the bartenders. Awesome martinis but go to Redbeards next door for a more welcoming vibe.

    Good cocktails, but no rye whiskey? If you want anything traditional go somewhere else.

    An incredibly boring & unsatisfying meal. The chicken masala was just smothered in sauce with hardly any flavor. The garlic potatoes weren't. The iced tea I sent back; looked & tasted like the water.

    The martinis are clearly the main attraction here but if you are more beer oriented try the Sam Adams Oatmeal.
