    If this place wasn't on Ingersoll I would probably not seek it out. Good location. OK beers. Often free live jazz.

    Be aggressive with the wait staff. They don't make eye contact.

    Prepare to sit for at least 10 minutes before the wait staff acknowledges your existence. They might bring you water. If you're worthy.
