    Get them to do the #iceball. Perfect for minimal melt when drinking the scotch. $3 upcharge though. Fun at least once! Read more

    Wasn't sold at first, but the chopped salad is one of the best combinations of food to ever enter my mouth.

    Sit at the bar and get to know Thomas. He knows liquor and he knows food. He will not disappoint. Trust him with your drink and food decisions.

    Every Monday at Citizen: By a bottle of wine, get a chopped salad (The Original or The Mirliton) for free!

    I'd get the pork belly pastrami for my appetizer and entree if it was socially acceptable.

    Cheese fondue appetizer is rich and heavy (duh, fondue) buy very good and fun to share. More importantly---get the chocolate pot de creme is the absolute best dessert ever. Kinda pricey but worth it.

    Creepy Eric T. Likes to befriends girls who are with their boyfriends. Watch out for him, not hard to miss.

    The Chopped Salad has its own FB page if that tells you anything but it's the cocktails that really shine. Find the speakeasy, order a salt barrel-cured cocktail.

    Not a pick up joint for the single gals. Good for dates and groups.

    The original chopped salad is amazing. There are a ton of ingredients all served in a line. Choose from smoked salmon or grilled chicken. Oh, and it's mixed table side. Yummy!

    If and when they have it try the spicy bacon popcorn on the late night menu

    Look up the definition of gastropub. Place that serves high end beer and food without pretension. Yeah right. All we got was attitude :(

    Original Chopped Salad is THE thing to get. It's a wicked addiction. Go on Mondays for Pop 'n Chop where you get a FREE chopped salad if you buy a bottle of wine!

    The chop salad exists on Facebook. Tuna is ok. Trout wasn't great. Negroni was good.

    Happy hour prices are insane values. Barrel aged cocktails solid. Must get bacon fat popcorn. Ridiculousness.

    Everything. I know that seems very general, but I've enjoyed everything I've ever gotten here. The mixed drinks are amazing & the food is excellent. If you have a little time, ask about the speakeasy.

    The Midwest Manhattan is easily the best Manhattan in the state.

    The Chopped salad makes this place! There is a reason the salad has it's own FB page. Makes up for the noise level being too loud. Entrees are ok. Place looks great.

    The name may sound pretentious, but its stylish yet relaxed atmosphere and offerings of classic American fare with a delicious kick in the ass are nothing short of modest classiness. Read more

    I am a fan of the late night menu which starts at 11pm, has great deals, amazing food and ends at 1:30a! Late night gourmet on the cheap!

    You MUST get the chopped salad! I ate it too quickly to take a pic. Definitely a reason it has it's own Facebook page.. Yumminess!

    Don't know what all the hype is about. Over-priced and distinctly average.
