I have been here plenty of times. This time I decided to have the burger. It was underwhelming. I will stick to the rest of the menu. My friend had salmon and loved it.

What a vibrant atmosphere, started at the bar with hot potato chips in a blue cheese fondue-Awesome! The bartender was attentive and quick with our drinks. We had Doug as our waiter, nice, attentive, but not pushy. We ordered Calamari-delicious, seared salmon prepared to perfection!...More

The food was very tasty and portion size was generous. The noise level was slightly less than a full-throated Harley-Davidson. Some people may be put off by the turn-of-the-century pictures of nude show girls.

Celebrated my birthday here with a fantastic brunch. First visit and it was fabulous - service, food, atmosphere. Word of advice 'make a reservation' this place is very popular and deserves to be.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
