    Curry Shepherds Pie has tons of tender bite sized pieces of lamb in a delicately balanced curry sauce. My Indian friend visiting from London said it was the best he's had in a restaurant!

    The variety of craft beer is worth the visit. The caldo de pollo soup is full of flavor with a kick. Try the garlic fish tacos with black bean quinoa is a nice refreshing dish.

    I come for brunch every week and the bartenders are awesome. They always remember my drink order (coffee & water) and are great about working with me to make things vegetarian friendly!

    The grilled cheese is epic. The beer menu is nearly unrivaled. If you have beer questions. Don't hesitate to ask Ollie, Amanda or any of the regulars. They really want to help.

    The Notorious P.I.G. and BBQ Pork Cuban are unreal! Fried pickles are a tasty starter and you can't go wrong with the house chips or shoestring fries.

    Grilled cheese is exceptional. As are the crab cakes. I recommend sharing both for a party of two. You can dip the grilled cheese in the crab cake remoulade sauce.

    Come for Big Mike if you can - Great food and beer, but the clientele can ruin it for you. I've been there on two separate occasions where people have vomited on the patio... Ruins the experience.
