A popular place to grab a good burger and local beer. A very busy place in a busy location. Fast service and friendly staff

Sat at the bar, had two local brews and the chip/dip trio with queso, hummus and guacamole. Fast service, bartender helped with drink questions. Dip trio was fresh and really good. Will come back and try the burgers.

While the food was reasonable for the price, customer service was severely lacking. Benjamin, our server, came to the table, neglected to introduce himself, and was not in the slightest way conversational. He began taking our orders, and when I said, "I apologize already- I'm...More
