    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.
