    The chef that created the concepts for Culinary was so innovative and creative. This is a one of a kind concpet and really brings a new taste to comfort food! They often have specials and unique menu

    Thirsty? Order the brown bag special. It's $1.95. It's basically cheap beer! Fun story behind the name. Drown your sorrows with the server that coined this concept. Cheers!

    Pretzels! I think most of the appetizers are better than the entrees. Desserts are soooo good too. Great ambiance. Gets pretty loud the later in the night it gets. Love the seating and chandeliers.

    Place gets packed. Open table reservation let skip the line. Pretzel Fondue would've been great had cheese been more heated. For some reason the bar was holding up our drinks. Even empty. And canned.

    Live music is Fridays and Saturdays, super fun environment but it will be super LOUD then too. If you can handle the noise, order the fondue and after dinner don't miss the caramel popcorn.

    Order the pork ribs- sauce made with jalapeño and molasses- not too spicy not too sweet. Meat literally falls off the bone, so delicious. I subbed a salad for my fries too. All meals are under $20!

    Don't let the name discourage you. The food here is kinda pricy for a college budget but worth every penny. My favorite is the house made fettucine! Also they have nearly 50 different beers choices!

    Named one of the 2010 Best New Restaurants. Try the pork belly Cubano. Don't skip the skillet of hot, gooey apple monkey bread. Order it when your entree arrives, as it's baked to order. Read more

    Amazing food! Probably because half the menu is dedicated to alcohol, however if your vegetarian you may have to think outside the box while trying to figure out what you can eat here.

    Fried chicken has a distinctly strong honey taste, a little off-putting to me, my wife, & a friend. Nothing wrong with it per se, & perfectly prepared. Just not to our liking.

    If going with a large party, call ahead! They only have 2 or so tables that can accommodate. Very good food! Fondue pretzels and many grilled cheese is the best!

    This place is run by criminals willing to defraud their employees. My best friend was a dishwasher there for 6+ months. They break health codes, and they refuse to pay him for his last 2+ weeks.

    Crispy shrimp Caesar salad hits the spot - though the shrimp is battered/fried, there's nothing greasy about it. (And as others have said, YES, the pretzels.)

    Fried chicken is great, as are fish and chips. Definitely share the pretzel appetizer. All cocktails are made with fresh and/or in-house ingredients.
