    Excellent choice for a good Saturday night meal. The crab cakes are rich in flavor. The duck mac-four cheese is a must to try.

    Bottomless mimosas for Sunday brunch. The chicken fried steak with jalapeño gravy was to die for. I hope they add it to the permanent menu. The Spanish guitar players give this place a unique feel

    The key word is "lounge" not "pub". Way more liquor than beer. Ale selection is thin. Food is very good. Worth a try. If I lived here, I could see coming here a bit.

    Bartenders are always a hit or miss at this spot... But the past few Wednesday's that I've gone, Julio or Trulio (couldn't hear him) is the go to guy for drinks. This is a great spot for date night.

    Great atmosphere but slow service. Food was delish; 4 cheese Mac and flatbread were tasty, and so was the gun gin mule. Also, you must ask about a wine list!

    Fish tacos are "available gluten free" which stands for "we leave off the habanero sauce and charge you $4 extra". They don't tell you that when you order.

    Too often closed for private events, with no notice on the door. By the time you walk through the crowd and get a barman's attention, it's a bit late to be told they cannot accommodate you.
