    YUM! Shared the Fried Calamari & Shrimp, Oysters and Pan Fried Trout! GREAT cocktails! Had the BEST Moscow Mule. We sat at the bar and the Bartender was so nice and knows how to mix a proper drink!

    Definitely stop in for a cocktail before a movie - loved the Grapefruit Rickey and the Tom Collins. Some light appetizers are good too, I'm always a fan of a meat and cheese plate.

    The best atmosphere, the best food, the best servers (ask for Bonnie), the best bar and bartenders (Rob is awesome), the best everything. Do yourself a favor and come here.

    Get the Cheeseburger! There's a reason why it's called THE CHEESEBURGER! One of the best I've ever had. And mac & cheese is the best in town!

    It's 9pm and we mentioned that we're here for drinks and dessert. Big mistake. Dining room only for those looking for a meal, and good luck finding a spot at the high-tops or the bar

    Calamari and shrimp a bit too salty, fresh chips a bit too greasy, tomato basil soup too tangy but the black apple Mai tai and veggie chili are the bomb!
