    Had a great lunch with a Local Brew [2 people]. Food was fantastic but the menu is very limited. Pizza, taco, burger fries. Main focus is on drinks and great list of Wines and Brews. Local beers and IPAs. Fast friendly service and great location that comes at an increased price. Also a great place to relax with friends and enjoying a few drinks

    Good service, great deals on drinks and awesome location. The Margherita Pizza had a thin crisp crust and all the ingredients were very fresh. The corn chowder also had the perfect hint of coconut that complemented the other component very well.

    Great atmosphere when there is live music. The late night and happy hour vibes are good. They validate parking here. The truffle fries, pizza and Mai tais are amazing. Reservations are necessary during peak hours
