There are steep stairs at the entrance that may deter someone. The hand rail helps. We were greeted warmly at the top. Service was attentive. Food was good. It was Cinco De Mayo and we tried their margarita. Not the best. But dinner was great.

Lunch was comfortable and the fish and chips delicious. Service was friendly and location downtown with fun view of the Pacific Garden Mall. Try to snag one of the tables overlooking the street.

Good selection of beers (I actually tried a peanut butter stout...and it was quite good). But the food is average-plus. My reuben was the best of our four meals. The burgers were served on buns that collapsed when you held them. And the just-barely-cooked fries...More

Yes, this place is a little expensive, but it is WELL WORTH IT. If you can trek up the long flight of stairs to heaven, do it! The service and atmosphere are fantastic. And as a vegetarian, they have a number of things to eat....More
