We stopped at SOB to enjoy some snacks and adult beverages on their outdoor patio. Their menu has a number of interesting items on it; we tried the maple bacon braised brussel sprouts. They also bring you some awesome popcorn while you're waiting. Good service.

We sat inside, but there are also tables outside which looked good. It's a chilled and relaxing place. We sat close to the window and people watched!! Menu isn't huge but plenty of choice. Service was a little slow, but nothing we couldn't cope with...More
