This is a great place to go after work and just chill at the bar. Get the back forty cocktail, burger, and a side of brussel sprouts. Yes, brussel sprouts. If I had known that brussel sprouts could be this good then I would've eaten vegetables as a child. Oh, and save room for the apple cider donuts. You'll be like Krispy Kreme who? The service is excellent and the bartenders are awesome. This place feels like home--but with better food.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
