    Taco salad and Mac and cheese is amazing! Really cool bar! My favorite in downtown. Just wish the staff was friendlier... I've had bad experience with them every time I go... But the food is worth it

    Great local beer selection. They do tend to over-serve the college kids though.

    Worse service I've gotten in a long time. I'm not a regular and it took forever just to get a drink while sitting at the bar. Only good thing was the food that took 30 minutes for 2 appetizers.
