    Cute place to go for brunch. Servers were nice and the food was good. If you sit at the bar, instead of a table you get a discount.

    Great local beer on tap. The squash bruschetta was amazing. I got the huevos rancheros which were ok, regretted not buying other thing more afterwards.

    Stop in for the happy hour, which includes all drafts. Try the beet hummus too, weird but tasty.

    Meh... The ketchup is amazing?? Seemed like it was straight up Heinz. These are not the local ingredients you are looking for... Especially at these prices.

    Tasty but way overpriced. University city high rollers hang out here. The only vegan item on the menu, tofu with sautéed veggies, was darn good.

    If you sit in the front room, be prepared for noise. It has sort of an old English pub feel and there tends to be a number of loud talkers.

    I ate here in 1989 and loved the fresh, innovative cuisine in a quirky, warm tavern. 22 years later, I returned and fell back in love with the cuisine, incredible service and the best Brussel spouts.
