    Fun venue! Tee (the manager) was awesome in helping us secure a table on a busy Friday night. Great menu options--try the shrimp cocktail and/or the meatloaf. Both are amazing! Definitely a favorite!

    Great late night dining spot, but arrive well before 11 if you want to eat outside or else management will get antsy. Truffle fries are amazing. Be sure to order some on the side of any dish.

    A little bit old fashioned, stylish interior, chic people, all the charm we were searching in the area. Nice serving people, food is well presented and of quality.

    Cocktails: all named after song lyrics... I Think I Can Beat Mike Tyson and Purple Rain are favorites. Bartenders know their stuff.

    Unfortunate experience. Absolutely zero options for a vegan or plant-based eater (🙋‍♀️) on brunch menu. Even oatmeal is cooked with dairy.

    Great service with a nice patio. Some of the best Eggs Benedict I've ever had. Highly recommend this spot.

    Love sitting at the high tops in the bar. Sweet potatoes were amazing. Worth the $7 they charge for them.

    Now serving Moscow Mules! Great place for brunch, lively scene. Food generally good, decent prices. Truffles fries were soggy yesterday...usually good-hope it was a fluke!

    Everyone talks about the kobe burger bit no one mentions the brunch on Saturday & Sunday. They have great Belgium waffles & Bloody Mary's.

    The tenderloin sliders are to die for just as much are the fries. Perfect date night out.

    Try the pulled pork! Its better than bbq only places and comes on a pretzel bun and killer fries! Winning!

    A full order of garlic truffle fries is too much for one person but should be attempted anyway.
