Located in a large development at the intersection of Chapel Hill Road and Cary Parkway on the chapel hill road side. Big box store, as you walk in the front youíve got the dining room in front of you, kitchen on the right, bar area on your left with a large covered patio outside the bar. High ceiling, bright colors, lots of tvís. You can see into the kitchen for the most part, which I always like. Help has been good though sometimes hard to get a few of the bartenders attention and Iíve had mixed results at tables, Iíve had gaps of staff checking in on two occasions, why I generally like the bar at most places. This place has a good list of local and larger distributed craft beer, not much in the way of BMC on tap, pants or Stella I think serve the role. They helped debut Alesmith when they first arrived to NC and do a good job focusing on the better NC breweries. Good food, pizza, burgers, sandwiches, sushi (has been pretty good when Iíve had it) food has been good to better than a lot in the area. Priced fairly for what you get, pretty happy with this one, they are a chain of three in the Triangle, and itís on my way home from work so I donít have to go out of my way for a better beer. Not gonna call it a go out of your way for location, but good if you are in the area.
