Went in for lunch, expecting good beer, but the food was great as well. I had fish tacos, and I also tried my husband's Bombay Wrap with sweet potatoes on the side. Wonderful! Service was prompt for mid afternoon. Would definitely go back again.

Chili: excellent. Quesadilla: so-so. Service: what service? After we were served our food, no one came back to check on us. They walked past, but never stopped. It was as if we were invisible. We finally stopped our server as she walked past us--again--to ask...More
