The food and service were good, but not outstanding. The atmosphere & music were nice. I would probably give it another try if I were in the area again.

My husband and I visit here often. The craft beers are delicious and the food is unique yet also very good. One of our favorite places to unwind on a beautiful, dog friendly patio.
