“Casual Bar Dining that's Just Right”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

After a couple of evenings of high end dining, we really craved some decent cocktails, a cold beer and some laid back eating. We past this place the night before and thought it like a decent bar. We were greeted warmly and seated quickly. Ordered a cocktail and a cold one while surveying the menu. Drinks came (very good) choices made (crumbed chicken goujons to start) special house burger with all the trimmings, soft shell tacos for mains. They came and the portions were VERY generous. We were shocked at such a mountain of high quality food. This wasn't cheap rubbish, this was the real deal. We enjoyed immensely but could not clear our plates! We spent the evening here with several more cocktails and beers. People watched in pleasant surroundings of funky bar area, large dining room with big screen showing sports / music. Lovely vibe and very relaxing. Great value and service was friendly and efficient!

“Surprisingly good American/fusion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

This place was lively. And busy! Good service.

Just stumbled across this place so wasn't expecting too much from the food but it was great. Good wine and bread + oil/balsamic too. My husband enjoyed a massive burger. My Asian chicken salad was awesome, if way bigger than anyone could ever eat!

“Broad choices on menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

It is a good restaurant, not cheap, but certainly reasonable for the quality. Also nice ambiance. It has a very good happy hour, bargain prices on fancy martini and good appetizers. I like the brick oven pizza.
