    The turkey dinner is one of the wackiest and best things I've ever eaten. And a hell of a beer list to wash it down

    Don't know what those hipster waiters are doing, but the wait time for ordering is unusually long. Food is awesome when it's seasoned correctly. Love coming here though.

    Try the vegan Big Luck Burger, which screams perfection—the burger patty is even encrusted in hazelnuts! Classic fixins: lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles, and hand-cut fries.
