Great for an afternoon of chilling in Nob Hill. Good for people watching. Inside is nice and cool, and the food is good. Happy hour starts at 4pm.

My friends and I decided to stop in for a quick beer and after three beers we finally left. The staff was attentive and very friendly. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone. We did have a couple of sandwiches which were huge.

The chocolate overdose pie was the best part. A lively, noisy place. Best seat is the bar so you can watch your food being prepared.

Found this place by wandering in the Nob Hill area. I tried the calamari, some soup and a tiger shrimp coctel (or something like that was the name) Nice prices but portions aren't that big. Laid back place, nice service.

My husband was looking for a "gastropub" so we googled and this place came up. Decided to go for it and not do the usual chains. Upon walking in we were a little apprehensive noting more bar than restaurant feel. Only a few low booths...More
