Hands down, one of my favorite dining experiences while traveling. Had the "special" burger and it was amazing. My travel partner got to peek inside the kitchen and the BGE. Chef was super nice, all service was excellent. Highly recommend.

It's seems to me that the place was kind of casual. I think you'll be ok but you won't find a lot of folks super dressed up. But I wouldn't let that stop you. Go for it and have fun. Happy birthday
