This is a nice little neighborhood bar. They also serve food and the food was surprisingly good. They have a great selection of Beer. Only negative is that the place is very dark. So dark, you cannot even read the menus. Had to use my iPhone flashlight just to read the menu. Otherwise, it was a great time.

We celebrated our friend's birthday here and had a good time. The food is not fancy, but straight forward tavern food. We like the burgers, quesadillas, and the nachos. But the wedges were too greasy. Nice selection of beers and the mixed drinks were tasty. The Bar was busy only one bartender, but the food still came out hot and... More

Arrived with a party of 11 Saturday night about 8:30. No one at the hostess stand. Found ourselves two empty tables in the bar. Waited for service. After waiting 10-15 minutes, waitstaff told us that tables were "reserved" (no signs, not in the dining area nor were they set for eating). No apology or other options offered. We left. Thanks...

Came for the beer which didn't disappoint. Great selection of house beers and guest beers on tap. The food was also good but limited for vegans.

Very nice place has only been open for 3 weeks. Nick was recommended to us by James at another bar and Nick was super nice. Food was great and the bartenders were quick and on top of everything. The one bartender that was there on Saturday November 8th who had a wedding to go to in the suburbs on Sunday... More

This was a quick visit for a sandwich and a couple beers. The bartender was busy with some "regulars" taking pics on iphone but eventually got around to us. (and he was very nice) Beer selection is extensive. Not so much food menu but evidently it is in the process of an over haul. Hotdogs with all the fixin's..Nathans..salads, quesadillas,... More
