    Good food. The inside is fairly loud and it's a bit hard to hear, but the outside seemed quite nice. Fairly trendy place.

    I loved the ahi tuna tacos and the burger. I wasn't a huge fan of the peanut butter ice box pie

    Excellent food and service, lobster ravioli is perfect and so is the desserts. Umami burger is also to die for.

    Very hard to hold a conversation upstairs -- acoustics are such that when it is full, the sound bounces around.

    Wings and draft beer selection. Wings are great but Korean sauce gets to be a bit much toward the end. Cool lounge vibe upstairs.

    Everything is so heavy but also so good. Go for the wings or Mac and cheese. I love the rustic appeal to this place.

    Wow, such great hopes for this place. The Drinks, contrived, the food, highly overrated and in fact poorly executed. For a Gastropub they are a one time place.

    Down by the waterfront, you can’t beat this great airy restaurant and bar carved out of an old warehouse. Great small plates as well as delicious main dishes.
  • Diego Andres E.
    Do not waste your time. Awful service. Food took an hour to arrive and it was cold. For a place with these prices, pretentious decor and location service should be way better and food should be warm.

    Atmosphere and drinks are great. They changed their menu a bit ago and I would have to say I am not a big fan. Avoid the burger. I would say to stick to the beer and drinks at this venue.

    Hoptails: An “Atypical” Chocolate Martini gains thickness from Green Flash’s Extra Stout Reduction, but smells like dessert from the chocolate bitters. It’s smoky, creamy and easy-drinking.
