    Great late night dining spot, but arrive well before 11 if you want to eat outside or else management will get antsy. Truffle fries are amazing. Be sure to order some on the side of any dish.

    Now serving Moscow Mules! Great place for brunch, lively scene. Food generally good, decent prices. Truffles fries were soggy yesterday...usually good-hope it was a fluke!

    Everyone talks about the kobe burger bit no one mentions the brunch on Saturday & Sunday. They have great Belgium waffles & Bloody Mary's.

    Love sitting at the high tops in the bar. Sweet potatoes were amazing. Worth the $7 they charge for them.

    Try the pulled pork! Its better than bbq only places and comes on a pretzel bun and killer fries! Winning!

    The tenderloin sliders are to die for just as much are the fries. Perfect date night out.

    Don't order the chicken Caesar salad... the chicken has no flavor and the lettuce is chopped like coleslaw. Awful!

    A full order of garlic truffle fries is too much for one person but should be attempted anyway.

    I had the waffles. They were delicious, but they do give you way too much better, and a little bit too much syrup. Read more
