    Highly overpriced for largely culture-less food and a marginal beer list.

    Busy lunch hour spot. Broad selection of salads, burgers and entrees. The ribs don't quite fall off the bone, and the fries are over salted.

    Had the salt and pepper shrimp and tempranillo. Wine was great. Shrimp was just ok. Ambiance was a typical American pub atmosphere. Everything was not bad just ok.

    Maybe it was just my trip but the server forgot our table for extended periods of time, he accidentally brought a glass of wine that we didn't order and assured us twice he would pay...not the case
