    The BLT is my most favorite ever. The Green Chili Stew is spicy goodness. Pro Pasta charcuterie is great to share. Amazing happy hour. Eat and drink here!

    The secret to the famous Phoenix mac and cheese? It’s baked in a huge sheet pan, then cut into squares. Read more

    The chips and salsa were amazing. The sandwich I had was amazing, it was the name of the street near it. And the brownie ice cream yumminess makes me want to go back already.

    IPA's are great. Service was a little slow but good. Happy Hour is good. Try the West Coast if you like something sweet. Didn't try the food but looked appetizing. Quaint establishment.

    This place is delicious. The service is impeccable. I loved every bit of it. I got the Sheridan, named after the street it's on. The turkey isn't some cheap junk from a bag. It's real oven roasted.
  • 🌵Andrew K.
    Rustic, quaint old home converted to a hip, trendy restaurant/bar. Lots of lovely little rooms inside & plenty of space outside... and the food is more sandwiches & salads rather than entrees.

    Matt Diamond might've honed his chops at some of the Valley's best wine bars, but he decided to go with "ale house" instead, offering five craft brews (of 8) on tap, along with 20 bottles and cans. Read more

    The RB&C is consistently awesome--if you love horseradish challenges. Cash money also pretty cool. Can't wait for it to cool down, with Old Rasputin on tap!

    $2.50 pints during happy hour (tue-sun 11am-6pm mon 11am-11pm)!! the olives are on point. And the green chile stew is the perfect amount of spicy and delicious!!

    The cheddar & mild chiles combo didn't hit, at all. The bread w/ the MNC failed to heighten the experience. Pasta used was a bit overcooked. The presentation felt like I was at an office potluck.
