Had a wonderful table for eight away from everyone else so we could hear each other talk. Wait staff was very attentive, answering questions about the meals and beer list - brought us some samples to help us choose, which we really appreciated.

The meal was good. We both had a salad. The atmosphere was really good as the ceilings were high and we sat close to the fireplace. The service is the key reason why I'm writing this review. We had a young server (I'm guessing early 20s at best). I'm just mentioning that to give a picture of the rest of... More

I have eaten at other locations and liked the food but the service was something to be desired. I tried this location with higher expectations. Unfortunately, the service was less than desired and the food was meh. I will not go back to any location ever.

I got the Bacon Black & Blue burger. Cajun seasoned burger, applewood bacon, gorgonzola, lettuce, tomatoes, onions. With sweet potato fries. I am glad I did! We started with the Spinach, Crab & Artichoke Dip Lump blue crab meat, artichoke hearts, baby spinach, parmesan cream sauce, pretzel bread. It was loaded with crabmeat!

My best friend & I went for lunch. She ordered a petite steak, green beans and au gratin potatoes. I had Pork Belly Taco with sweet potato fries and sweet tea. I asked for more tea, and was given regular tea, not sweet tea. We each had a Brownie Rockslide, which was amazing. The restaurant was almost empty, so no... More

I enjoy eating and having a beer here every so often. I really like their food and their beer selection is pretty good but there are a lot of beers that they do not carry especially some of the more popular ones, to drink here you really have to have an open mind and try new things. Items are fairly... More

This was our second choice for Sunday brunch, but we're glad we ended up here. Four adults, a kid, and a baby and we all enjoyed it. Restaurant was not crowded at 10 AM and we enjoyed eating and talking and were never rushed to leave. Service was quick and pleasant. We liked it much better than Cafe Catarra.

Hey cdbulldogs, Thank you for the 4 star review. Yes, we still offer discounted burgers on Mondays from 4pm to close. They are now $3 because we recently partnered with Seven Hills Food Co. serving pasture-raised, antibiotic and hormone free, local Virginia beef! Quality comes at a price but the reward is worth it... trust me. We would love to... More

We went with a group of 12 for lunch. Wow the service was great and the food was even better. Yes they have some of the best BURGER combinations in Richmond but the have a wide variety of other sandwiches and entrees that will satisfy whether you are in a group of 2 or 20. Midweek entree specials like burgers... More
