    They have a very small but cute and cozy outdoor seating area. Inside was very loud. Food was just okay.

    Fried pickles are amazing and you have to try the fried chicken sandwich. The fish tacos were very good too. Pretty much anything on the menu is a win.

    A very nice bar but can get crowded. Great for singles, mingling, and meeting new people. They serve good drinks and the fried pickles are pretty cool.

    Many thumbs up for the cocktails. Also, I love any bar that serves bacon mac and cheese, but this one is particularly yummy. I saw they have pickle backs and a pickle cocktail that I want to try!

    Watch out for the Asian waitress she horrible. It's best if you sit at the bar instead of sitting at a table since it's the best way you can avoid her. Worst waitress ever.

    Best thing on the menu is the Bua Fried Chicken Sandwich. Get a side of spicy mayo with it. The ribs and burger are ok. The fried pickles are so-so at best IMHO. Breading to pickle ratio is off.
