Went on a Weds night, had a 20 minute wait for a seat. Always a good sign! The food did not disappoint. Build you own burger was spot on. Appetizers were large. Good choice of craft beers. Will be back next time in the area.

This is a neighborhood spot for me, I usually visit at least three times a month. My favorite is there fried shrimp and sweet potato fries.
