    Roasted Shishito Peppers - spicy. Trust me. Don't let anyone tell u otherwise. Or maybe we got a crazy batch. Man up and just be prepped for a shocker.

    CJ is in Denmark for 2 months so the menu is temporarily smaller. Still fully worth the chow down!

    Not a fan. The calamari tasted like rubbery oil. Ambiance was nice though.

    Stopped for drinks with 4 others at 6pm Tues. Bar was full so sat at table and then were told we must leave soon if just drinking. ALL the other tables were empty and bar areas were full with diners.

    They took forever to bring our food, I asked for cheese in my eggs and they "assumed" I wanted bacon in them also because the bacon was with the order. I don't recommend coming here!!!

    Its my local. I've been dozens of times. Happy Hour is good value - try the pulled pork sliders. We also love the sweet potato fries with aoli and the scallops. Been to a random movie launch there 2.

    If you go to The Yard, be prepared for: unisex bathrooms, expensive food and spotty service.
