Different but excellent food menu. Excellent pizzas! And great ambiance - a tree in the middle of the restuarant!

Met with family for lunch, included a 7 year old. Lots of choices of flat breads, sandwiches, salads, specialties of the day, soups and pizzz. Also had a childs menu. Food was excellent, service great. Beer on tap plus non alcoholic choices. Excellent, friendly service.

We love to have a cocktail and eat here. It is usually our first choice in Normal. They have awesome, original food along with some more common items. The only change I would like to see would be jazzing up the outdoor space.

The food here is very good and the drinks are cold. Nice place for an afternoon business lunch or to catch up with friends/ family for drinks or dinner. Parking can be a challenge and if you have super picky eaters this may not be the place for you. Alot of items on the menu you don't see everywhere.

This is a great restaurant in Uptown Normal, which is walking distance from the Illinois State University campus and the Hyatt and Marriott hotels located next to the campus. We have eaten here a few times and the food is always delicious. Had pasta and fish dishes on this last visit and they were all very good. Sweet Potato Tot... More

We had lunch at 1:00 on Sunday and the place was packed. Service was provided by college waiters and waitresses and was exemplary with everyone pitching in to serve us. We started with the apple Brie flatbread which was excellent. My wife had the spaghetti squash entre and I had the beef stroganoff. We split the entre's which was good... More

Found this on Open Table, it was about five miles off the highway, worth every mile. Cute place, with a tree in the center. They had Daisy Cutter on the draft beer list, very nice. I had a black bean burger, with sweet potato tater tots, they were tasty. Cuban was very good along with the fries. Waiter was also... More

My husband and I went here on a Saturday evening for dinner. It was busy and if you want a table without a long wait, be sure to make a reservation. We decided to just go to the upstairs bar to eat. We were the only ones sitting at that bar, so had the whole area to ourselves, which was... More

Casual but nice. Very good food and service. Quaint downtown close to the University. So many choices of tap beer so little time.

This place is awesome. Very upscale smart casual, but you could wear jeans or a suit. I had the taco pizza (they call it the fiesta) and it was the bomb-diggity. Chicago style medium/thin crust, chorizo, hot sauce, cheddar and mozzarella, cooked to toasty perfection and finished with broken tortilla chips, iceberg lettuce and diced tomato. Just thinking about it... More
