This is definitely a diamond in the rough! It is surrounded by more popular bars and its facade is very unassuming, but it is great! We got a Groupon and did a date night! It is high end food and atmosphere. All dishes were delicious...More

We dropped in on a Friday night and got a small table in the back. For the best seating make sure you make a reservation. The flavor of the meal and the pleasant service more than made up for the small table. The pork chop...More

Had brunch here recently and loved it. Friendly service, great bevs, and a most excellent Eggs Benedict, my go-to travel breakfast. One of the best, very fresh ingredients and a strong cup o coffee. If you're anywhere near Carytown or The Fan, find it!

Great vibe in a small setting with fabulous food. For couples or small groups of three or four this is ideal. The hanger steak is sublime. Great local feel. Parking can be a problem but just keep circling the neighborhood until you find a spot.

One of the few places you can get appetizers, dinner and dessert! Everything I have had has been delicious.
