    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.

    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.

    The angry prawns were awesome, sliders were outstanding and the burnt tips. This place is amazing. Awesome selection of very hard to find beers.

    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.

    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.

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

    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 :)

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

    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.

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

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