Stopped by for after dinner cocktails. They have a fantastic bourbon selection. Great Bulleit old fashioned for me and Angels Envy on the rocks for my wife. Get there early- it filled up fast.

This place has little street appeal; someone has to tell you about it; but the food is remarkable and the atmosphere warm and friendly. Reservations are a good idea.

We dined here based on reviews, but were not so impressed. If you want a jam packed place, and dining in an extremely loud bar area, then this is it. It looks like specialty cocktails are their feature, because their draft beer and wine list...More

Our dinner was very good but we were seated in the bar and it was very noisy in there, we didn't know they had another room we would asked to be seated there.
