    Tried the highly recommended Chorizo burger and was sorely disappointed: undersized patty that was cooked until tough and rubbery. Thankfully, the Mac and cheese, and the beer list made up for it.

    Nice low key spot. Despite their well earned rep as a beer bar, they serve surprisingly solid classic cocktails as well.

    The heaping plate of homemade chips smothered in bleu cheese is hard to miss. It's littered with crumbled cheese and bacon, and finished with chipotle sauce, tomatoes, green onions, and cilantro. Read more

    Drinks are yummy-pay $1 extra to get it served in a kitschy mug to take home. Tacos were gross&a waste of money&calories.

    They, being the Twin Peaks reference restaurant that it is, has an overlooked list of show inspired drinks that should be tried. Ask about them.

    Find surprises in dishes like collard green egg rolls, flavored with smoky bacon and served with fish sauce; or duck confit, delicately mounded on a limp, pumpkin puree-slathered corn pancake. Read more

    The entertaining gastropub menu, coupled with a good beer list, keeps the cozy space crowded. Starters, such as chicken wings, fried pickles and kettle chips are straightforward bar snacks. Read more
