    The food here is so good. Not typical bar food. Try the angry prawns if you like seafood. Tasty and it is served with polenta which I never cook myself, nice to have something different on the side.

  • Princess Susannah G.

    Excellent food and value for the 3-7 mon-fri happy hour! $3 appetizers and the don't skimp on the serving size! $3.50 beers! Great outside seating! Love the sweet potato fried and Mac and cheese!

    I came here on a Monday so the place was not bumpin' but their Pork Sliders were Kick-Ass! Really nice looking bar. I would definitely come back if I'm in San Jose.

    Not gonna beat around the bush: this place is awesome. Good food by day and raucous bottle smashing nightlife, literally. I'm from Portland, OR but damn it puts our bars to shame.

    Gotta have the Tiger shrimp gritta thing here and the Field of greens salads... Just perfect.. Oh and get a mimosa!

    Hidden gem in downtown San Jose. $3.50 draft lagunitas/full boar during happy hour. Small intimate place with a nice outdoor patio as well.

    Food is great here, they'll give you a mountain of fries and chicken if you get the chicken tenders.. Never dissapointed with their menu :)

    Get the bone in Pork Chop, wonderfully juicy and flavorful. Don't get much if the green apple sauce but didn't even matter.

    Chef Matt has launched a fantastic line of summer salads for lunch. Try the grilled chicken salad with arugula, brie and grilled pears. YUMMY!

  • Christina

    Says there's a "special" but when you go to redeem they said they exceeded the amount of specials they were able to give out.

    Had the pork chops with polenta. Sold! The sauce was delicious. Can't wait to go back to explore more of the menu.

    Pork chop and bone marrow were excellent, but the mac and cheese was very mediocre... tasted like velveeta.

    Awesome service, great people. Meatballs are tasty but tough. Nicest staff in San Jose.

  • Julia C.

    keep in mind that they CLOSE the kitchen at 10pm, so make sure you order a bigger dinner than a tiny winny salad :(
