    Great happy hour, great bartenders and an awesome selection of hard liquor and local beers on tap. The food is pretty good too! Not a huge fan of the cheese platter though.

    When in doubt, go with the braised ribs, tuna tartar and lamb chops. Don't forget the bourbon bread pudding!!! Nice people, great service, and a great place!

    Best spot in the house are the two seats on the second floor near the huge plate glad window. Great for people watching.

    The eclectic grub (everything from mac & cheese to sous vide chicken breast to chickpea ravioli) is the perfect match for the dizzying selection of beer, wine, and crafty cocktails. Read more

    Atmosphere and servers are very nice. I'd come again for a nice place to have drinks and hang out but not for brunch.

    Meh food, that's not overly priced but the obsessive highlighting of the sous viede preparation makes me think the kitchen thinks this technique is somehow new.

    Ok- get HUGO as your waiter (he knows his stuff and has the best "bedside" manner I've seen in YEARS)! Rarely I have truly enjoyed my experience and it's one of my new regular spots
