We ordered carryout after a visit for lunch. The menu has a lot of options and everything was good. It sits in a busy location if you like crowds.

Locally brewed, very good with multiple on tap. Service was very good and friendly, she willingly set me up some tasting and knew what she was recommending. Food was ok, we had a grilled chicken salad and chicken mini-tacos. Acceptable value, nothing to write home...More
