Happy hour runs until 8 pm with a decent selection of draft beers for $3. There are also happy hour small bites (I will attach a picture of the current items). Word is, their fish tacos are to die for. Loreto was our server and he did a great job of keeping our glasses full, plates cleared, and food delivered... More

Terrible experience. We went on a Ghost tour with Bad Wolf which was awesome and stopped in for the special happy hour offered since we did the tour. Another family from our tour group got up and left due to the poor service when no one went to their table to get their order. We finally ordered our drinks and... More

We stopped in here after a Bad Wolf Ghost Tour - they have a deal with them on discounted drinks - think $5 margaritas. Of course my wife could have one of those and opted instead for the $10 house specialty margarita which had freshly squeezed oranges, limes, etc. It was very good. The bar is in what's said to...

I was starving because I'm pregnant and my guy Sy rushed up to my room [on the 7th floor] and provided me with a menu. Tonight, I felt good enough to step out, he was so kind to make special drinks for my friends and Jose (the Chef) made the BEST wings!!!! Sam at the front desk is a jewel.... More

I saw her everyday greet us in the morning for breakfast and every evening greet us for dinner, always friendly, always accommodating. The bartenders also had some of the best drinks downtown, I honestly told... More

My wife and I visited the bar/bistro on an impulse for drinks and dinner while downtown. We always enjoy sitting at the bar rather than at a table, so we were happy to find ample bar seating. The ambiance was unremarkable, but the bartender on duty last night (Katherine?) was charming and friendly, always with a smile. She made us... More
