    Drink prices are reasonable and choice is varied. But the fish tacos are a must.

    The NY steak was perfect. I had asked it well done and said it could be butterfly open. The chef didn't do it. He cooked it so well, though that I admit it would really have been a sacrilege...

    Always been a neighborhood gem but lately they've developed an attitude. Just asked to use their bathroom and was told its for paying customers, even after I told them I'm there at least once a week.

    The bar downstairs gets packed, so unless you get one of the seats, you’re gonna be waiting a while. Head upstairs to the Club House where there’s another bar and a shorter wait. Read more
