    An hour wait for food in a practically empty restaurant. Light on the apology once food did arrive, which was decent, but definitely not worth the wait.

    Rude staff and still didn't get my food after 1.5hrs! Bad choice to come here.

    Insanely over priced food. May come back to try their lobster mac n' cheese...too bad it's only on the menu as an appetizer.

    This place is utterly understaffed: there's only one person serving the entire restaurant of 25 people. The food also seems to be leftover & reheated. Will not return.

    The grilled octopus app is so yummy. Paired with the arugula salad (goat cheese and orange segments) it makes a great dinner! Jalapeño corn fritters are a nice snack too... Mmmm

    If you're looking for the lazy option, they don't deliver very far.

    The fried chicken is good, but what really makes the dish is the green beans and mashed potatoes. Don't see that kind of effort on sides very often. Loved the environment too! Will def be back

    The cool atmosphere of this place will definitely make your brunch more interesting. Make sure you bring cash though, because they don't accept cards.

    The neighborhood bar embraces many aspects of Long Island City charm, from trendy bourbon cocktails to a takeaway brunch counter.

    Came here for an early dinner I started with the Jim Jam to drink. I highly reckoned this. Since it was Tuesday they had the lobster roll special, which is a must have for lobster lovers.

    The pork belly is out of this world, and the deep fried oreos are beyond imagination, because they are. Nice waiter!

    I made the mistake of ordering wine, $9 for a small glass of house wine served in a cup is a joke. Very tasty Mac & cheese though.
