    The gin & tonic is a must have. Also be sure to set aside plenty of time for dinner (service is a bit slow.. in a good way)! Also, the crispy chicken w/ homemade tabasco sauce is absolutely delicious!
  • Josh R.
    Their cocktails are excellent; they have special whiskey reserved with four roses for their old fashioned's amazing house-made tonic for their gin and tonics. Food is top notch, and the service is 💯

    The food is to die for, from red meat delights to veggies....however, their corkage fee border ridiculous (25 first bottle 40 the second). Obviously they serve amazing wines, so best to buy it there.

    The steak tartare is absolutely amazing. Their gin & tonic is ridiculously good, as is the elderflower gimlet. You can't go wrong here.

    If on menu, the pork chop with poblano smoked Gouda grits is great. Make sure, however, that you don't miss the bone marrow.
