The staff was very friendly and explained what was gluten free. The food was great. It was conveniently located near our hotel (Drury) so we walked over.

Poor service and uninspired food although the guacamole flight was good. Great views though so maybe just visit, get a drink, and relax. Might want to hurry since it may not be around for awhile
