Restaurant did absolutely nothing with unruly customers. Extremely Loud fans cheering during a baseball game using massive profanity.We left with other patrons and the staff couldn't care less.

Enjoyed this little place. Had a tasty chicken sandwich and a cider. Young, informal crowd. Lively and loud. Hilarious staff that jumped straight into discussing Brexit with us upon seeing our UK driving licences when asking for ID! ;)
