    Don't come here unless you are into 'basic' stuff. Awful place, could be good if it had a different crowd/atmosphere.

    Love the happy hour - the pumpkin ale is really great ($3), & if the kitchen has the ingredients on hand they'll whip you up some buffalo mac n cheese which is awesome. Great service & fun atmosphere.
