I stopped in here for the first time today with my wife and daughter for a late lunch on a Sunday. The place was fairly empty today. The dining area is one big open room with maybe 30 tables, mostly high top 4 seaters and a couch and a couple of chairs by the fireplace. There’s a long bar against the right side wall as you walk in followed by the food prep area. The beer, about 10 taps all craft except the Guinness and PBR. There’s a bottle list maybe 50 deep with some decent brews on it. It almost seems like they are desperately trying to straddle the gateway craft beer line. I had a little yella pils and a 90 minute while I was there an was tempted to order an old raspy in a bottle. The menu is very small, 6 or 7 choices, Kobe beef burger, short ribs, rigatoni, 1/4 chicken, mussels, etc While the menu might be limited the food was fantastic. My companions enjoyed their burgers and I loved the rigatoni bolognese. The service was good, it should have been for how slow it was, and the bill seemed reasonable for the quality. I will be back.
