    Nice bar area with friendly staff. Beautiful patio. A dozen craft brews on tap and a decent selection of bottles. Had pork belly and mash potatoes. Good comfort food.

    I loved the kale burger - ask for a side of truffle mayo. It's a dollar upcharge, but worth it. The Diablo cocktail is awesome and reminds me of Oaxaca!

    Brussels Sprouts were extremely tasty and fulfilling. The fries were awesome too, but the bacon fat popcorn was my favorite thing we had that night. The place is different, cozy and has great food!

    Absolutely LOVE this spot. The food and ambiance were spot on. You must try the duck confit mac n cheese as well as the bacon popcorn....to-die-for.

    The kale burger is pretty damn tasty. The cocktail menu is small, but divine. Always a good crowd, and the new patio out back is great for nice weather!

    Great food, fun atmosphere and craft beer made on premises. Try the avocado hummus, but order EXTRA PITA. It's that good!

    Honestly, if I could eat only one dessert for the rest of my life, it'd be the Deep Fried Jam Butty. Save room!

    Good food, the in house microbrew is something I would leave alone. E for effort but they do really hit the mark.

    Ask for the chips, instead of their fries. Unless you're getting truffles oil. Then get the fries.

    Mediocre. Maybe it's because brand new? I don't need to go back.
