great place to grab brunch with several different good options, be sure to arrive early or plan to have time on your hands as it can get quite busy on weekends during brunch time.

My wife and I enjoy this place on nights when the Reds are out of town and we don't feel like making a big production out of dinner. Interesting menu, nice choice of beers, and not wildly expensive.
