The burgers here are phenomenal!! The service was great, there is always a lively atmosphere here, great soups & salads, great cocktails, the Mt. Vernon sandwich is excellent. Get there early for dinner, or you'll have a 30-60 minute wait for a table.

They have call ahead seating, however, to ensure that your party is sat faster make sure everyone is present when you check in. Their policy is that they do not seat incomplete parties.
