I was reluctant at first because it was sort of too casual but then we ate our food and it was excellent. They had games and we played battleship while eating. The people were friendly.

The food had great flavor. Very creative selections. Everything was super fresh; you could tell it wasn’t pre-made. They had an unexpected large order so it might have taken a little longer than usual but we enjoyed our beer and the vibe. Good beer choices.
