Don't sleep on this place! First of all it's incredibly loud so I can't imagine ever nodding off in this spot however the food and drinks are amazing! First mistake is that I went with my family on a Saturday evening for a quick weekend night dinner. The crowd was young and loud but the service was really good. We ordered our drinks, house special margarita and a dirty martini for mom. They came very quickly and were surprisingly good for what we thought to be purely a beer joint. For food we had their take on "The Big Mack" which was incredibly juicy and delicious, their special sauce is way more special than that clown's! The tomato braised veal meatballs with creamy polenta is on the menu as a "small plate", however the portion is quite generous and the flavor is outstanding. The fish tacos are done just right with a light beer batter and a flavorful slaw and chipotle aioli to top them off. The mussels are cooked in a lovely full bodied smokey broth that keeps you reaching for your side of crusty french bread perfect for dipping. We also had the pretzel and beer cheese, so beer cheesy good!!! This place is a total repeat, just not on a Saturday night!
Really good burger

Went here on Halloween night, drawn in by the waitress dressed as a very sexy Dorothy. Wasn't expecting much, but there's more to this place than cleavage and beer. The burger was really good. Tasted like it had been cooked on a charcoal grill. Not sure how they pulled that off. The truffle fries weren't that amazing, but I'd definitely go back for the burger.
