    Everything on the menu is solid. We particularly love the cucumber quinoa salad. Great range of beer on tap.

    The sweet potato fries were amazing! Service was great and the atmosphere is very inviting and personal. My burger was great and the spring salad was a great side. I would totally recommend this place

    Great little restaurant. Their sweet potato fries are utterly incredible. Make sure to save any leftover jam to go on the grilled toast

    Solid rotating taps, cash only, they have a cheap ATM. Great local food. The hanger steak and stuffed grilled cheese are always excellent. If they have a Mac and cheese special, get it. Great bloodies

    Get the sweet potato fries! The blackberry jalapeño relish and the herbed aioli that come make them even better. The various spreads and sauces make every dish sound mouth watering!

    Love Alchemy a lot. They don't accept card so I probably do there a 1/4 of the time I would otherwise. I would recommend to everyone I know if they weren't trying to save .30 a transaction.

    Chris Winterhack · December 10, 2011
  • Pauli R.

    The best mashed potatos and bloody mary's hand juiced via Jack Lalane juicer.

    The salads are great but a little heavy on the dressing. Try one with the dressing on the side.

    The sweet potato fries with black berry jam and spicy mayo are a must! Big serving to split with 3 or 4 if u want room for your main course
