My husband and ate here - good food- we had a light dinner. Wedge salad was good, he had a chicken sandwich and I had braised short rib disco fries. Food was good, revive was good. But it is a small restaurant with no sound barriers- so one noisy group makes it noisy for everyone. It was difficult to hear... More

I'd passed by this establishment any number of times on business to neighboring communities, but never was moved to try it, until the Diners, Driveins and Dives tv show segment. The accolades of Guy Fieri are spot on. The place gets a tremendous crowd, at least on the Saturday night we were there, and reservations are a must. I'm happy... More

Definitely a hidden gem you shouldn't miss. I was clued into the experience and menu via Food Network and came away very impressed on our first visit. While RHI boasts a full menu (the burgers are well-crafted), you can also find other staples such as fish and chips. We tried a beet salad as well which was flavorful and fresh.... More

Fresh carrot ginger soup, beet & goat cheese salad with light refreshing Champagne vinaigrette & mushroom/truffle mac & cheese were all delicious openers! We shared everything & had plenty to take home!! We pushed our luck & ordered the fried chicken sandwich & the pan seared chicken! Very tasty, I brought home most of the sandwich & the great, not...

I was headed to the local movie theater for an afternoon show so I decided to go for lunch first. I had seen this place on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and thought I'd give it a shot. I'm glad I did. the burgers lived up to their reputation and the selection of draft beers was great - despite the omissions... More

This place is the real deal. Great burgers, great appetizers, great fries options, good vibe. This place get super crowded on weekends so prepare to wait, but they have a nice bar.

Outstanding establishment epitomizing what a gastropub should be. A well thought out craft beer selection with a food menu that offered at least a dozen different burger selections as well as other tempting food items. My burger was cooked perfectly and came with hand cut fries, no need for ketchup here. The bartender, Mike, was on his game, he said... More

OMG, I never go anywhere for a burger, but this place has the best one ever! I know there is a complete menu here, but their signature burger is incredible. A great burger topped with a fried green tomato, then a healthy amount of creamy goat cheese, finished with crisp baby greens. All this plus bacon jam....mmmmm

Went on a Saturday night for a birthday celebration. Staff was friendly until we were greeted by Juan, our waitor. He had a pompous attitude. We ordered drinks to start and were told it was an "upscale" bar. He continued with his smug comments throughout out dining experience. It really was not an enjoyable evening. Quite a disappointment.

We made a late afternoon decision to go for dinner and couldn't get reservations. Throwing caution to the wind, we went early to try and maybe grab a seat at the bar. It was well worth the wait! We ended up with a table for 2 upstairs. The staff was on pointe. Very efficient and stayed friendly through a very... More
