A very welcoming restaurant with a large bar area that looks great for an after work drink with friends.
Menu isn't daring and the execution is ok. Like many places, rare comes out med-rare and in this case a med-rare burger was med-well.
The bent arm fries are very tasty but have a coating that says they are not house made.
Would go back but not for any special occasion.

New place, good reviews, went on a Monday to miss the crowd.
Got a table quickly but did not get a server.
Seemed like a lot of people working including a manager type who never looked our way.
After a bit of a wait a server took our drink orders, brought water and informed us our server was very busy.....not a good sign when there were sections of tables with no customers and so ,presumably, less busy wait staff.
Our server did get to us and did do the job but never spoke to us or asked how we were making out.....etc.
So about the food, wings-big and perfectly cooked, burgers-excellent ground beef and toppings, side salad-fantastic!
Will we return? Maybe......but not soon

We were in the mood for burgers and we knew this new hot spot specialized in burgers so we got a reservation for a Saturday night. Unfortunately the burgers, while many interesting choices, were just ok for the $15 price. There are better gourmet burgers around town for less. A burger place should be able to cook a burger to the doneness requested and the size was small for the price. The French onion soup was more successful with excellent gooey cheese. The beer prices were a bit on the high side. We will stop by again just to try the milkshakes - perhaps those will be great.

Food was OK but my big complaint is the wine glass was literally 1/4 full. $9 for a 1/4 glass of wine is a rip off. (Its a huge pet peeve of mine) I liked the atmosphere and our waiter was great- although they were out of 3 beers our party asked for and one of the menu items.

I joined a friend for lunch at this new to me restaurant. We enjoyed our quiet booth, had good service by a very friendly server. We both chose salads which were delicious especially since they catered to our requests. Very nice menu selections.
