    perhaps pricey for what you get (quality)...food is fine but not awesome...beer and bourbon selections are solid though.

    Decent. Was disappointed by the lack of flavor in the burger. Lamb Flatbread was undercooked and the bread was flavorless. Not bad, but wouldn't make it a destination.

    Overall the restaurant has a nice quiet vibe, but the service was lacking and rude. The menu is simple, and nothing you couldn't put together in a microwave.

    The service was really terrible. The atmosphere was awkward and near silent. The pork belly sandwich was ok.

    Food is universally excellent, but service is slow, inattentive and overall, leaves a lot to be desired.
