    Sit, relax and enjoy a delicious prix fixe Sunday brunch – start with the complimentary cinnamon bread followed by either Crab Cake Benedict or the Quiche.

    Wonderful brunch spot, sat outside since super long wait for inside... even still, staff was quick and attentive!! All of the food is worthwhile, add fries to anything (theyre perfectly crisped)

    The Internets said that this would be a great place to take a larger family group with kids after the Museum. And the Internets were spot on! Fantastic service and surprisingly large servings.

    Never much of a line for brunch but food is just ok for the price. Go on a monday night instead for pub trivia & some of the best mac & cheese in town! Ask if the buffalo chicken version is available.

    Mac and cheese with toppings are amazing 😍 and they have the best best service. Everyone is nice in there. Plus they have dogs photos all around you.

    The burger is decent. Good brunch special that comes with a zesty Bloody Mary. Great interior decor with dogs galore and nice outside patio

    Had the "buffalo chicken mac & cheese", and the first half was great, but I should have stopped myself from eating more. I left way too full to enjoy the post-dinner walk.

    If they have the buffalo chicken mac & cheese as a special, don't look at anything else on the menu. That's your dish, and it's a great one.

    Brunch food is a little underwhelming as is the Bloody Mary. But worth the trip if you can get a patio seat.

    French toast is killer! Essentially raisin bread in french toast form. Oatmeal is also lip-smackingly good--it's made with sweet cream or something like that.

    I see a lot of comments about the mac n' cheese, which just tells me that full advantage has not been taken by some people of the wonderful food options in this great city. Go to S'MAC instead.
