Great happy hour, good service and a great place to hang out with friends to have a drink. Restaurant downstairs is excellent, but food in the Tavern, upstairs is good too. Catch them at happy hour for 50% off food.

Walked into the bar at 8pm on a Monday night for a few drinks. The place was uncomfortably empty. We were greeted and told to sit where we please. We sat up the empty bar. We were then told the barman will be with us shortly. After waiting 5 minutes, no one come to serve us so we left. They... More

A local recommended this place for our anniversary. Although it was pretty crowded, we got in right away but I'd advise a reservation. The food was all wonderful and the service was great. I got their special pasta for the night and my husband loved his steak. Very good menu even with veggie items, and a good drink/wine list. For... More

Happy hour menu was great; Mom had the carnitas tostada and I did the BBQ pork sliders. Food was great and Irish car bomb was tasty. Definitely recommend 👍🏻

This is a cute location, very cabinesque, with friendly service, but the happy hour menu was not very impressive. Just basic fried foods and house beverages for their happy hour. A little more variety would jump it up to a 4 star.

We went here for New Year's Eve and had a great meal. Our daughter is vegetarian and loved her meal, the rest of us enjoyed the steaks. The French Onion Soup is delicious.
