Reasonably priced happy hour, including drinks and apps. Our server was excellent, efficient and pleasant. If you can find parking, this is a great place to stop for lunch or happy hour with apps in an area that can be very pricey.

Food was average or below. Bar food over priced for the quality. They had just opened so the service wasn't great either. Skip this place.

Had a burger and it was not very good- greasy and overlooked. My son liked the salmon sandwich. Fresh green beans drowned in butter. Not the best but we were hungry and it was affordable. The waiter was very nice and attentive.

We went to this place based on the great reviews my brother-in-law had heard. I had the salmon plate with rice pilaf and vegetable primavera. The food was decent but not the best, in my opinion. It seemed like more of a bar and bar...More
