Paul is the owner chef and he keeps the menu fresh and exciting. I have never had a bad meal here in the many years they have been open. You can eat on the patio when the weather cooperates. Get the duck nachos!

Ok...so the food is spectacular and the craft beers are remarkable...but nothing hits you like the "prelude to hell" bathroom this place has. Absolutely tipped me over. All I can say is "Duck Nachos!"

The food and service were outstanding. 12 - 15 different dishes were brought out in "European tapas" style, as one was better than the previous. Will definitely dine in the future...
