The beer options were great. I had the fish tacos. The batter was bland and the pieces were too large in relation to the soft tortilla shells. He had the signature burger which he thought was really good! Great locale!

Cool list of beers, nice atmosphere but coldish if you sit next door in winter. I wouldn't eat there though. Nice area in Buffalo.
