    If you get hungry, order the fries. You get a lot for less. But don't forget the kitchen closes at 11:00 pm.

    Best open mic in town on Mondays. And I'm not just saying that because I'm the host. Trust me, doesn't get much more entertaining than this.

    The food here is by far the best I've had in a bar, and its quality and presentation rivals any gourmet restaurant. My favorite is the chicken sandwich. The bartenders ( Erin! :) ) are great too.

    The cobb salad isn't as good as it used to be. Overcooked chicken and the portion has shrunk for the same price.

    Incredible open mic on Mondays starting at 8pm. The line up is talented, goes till late, and generally has a featured artist with a 30-45m show. Mileage there may vary... Eat a burger and listen up.
