    They do have a lot of great beers on tap and the bartenders are really knowledgeable about the beers, which makes for a good experience!!

    We had the prosciutto and gruyere waffle sandwich with side salad and vinaigrette and the grilled cheese and tuscana soup. Both were excellent!

    They got a bar full of beers, I stay away from the Porter fuse with Zinfandel, the IPAs and Porters are great. As for food I stick with the tots.

    Tater tots with parm and garlic are top notch. Chicken was decent, waffle was really good, but the syrup didn't add anything extra for me. The plate was ok overall, just needed more balance/flavor.

    I don't understand the appeal of all these waffle sandwich places who serve rubbery processed waffles. The ambiance and beer make up for the mediocre food though!
