Food is always great. Drinks are phenomenal (and not that pricey). Music was a little loud for a Sunday afternoon, but, we're old (40's), so there's that. Overall, food, drinks, and service are consistently good.

Im not a fogey, but this place was SO unnecessarily loud for 4:30 pm on a Sunday afternoon. Couldn’t talk to my family. You may not mind if you’re an 80s/90s retro-pop aficionado, I guess Food was hit-or-miss. Duck fat fries are awesome. Burger is big and confused, and comes w a bland fondue sauce for cheese. Brick chicken was pretty terrible. Portions are huge if that is your thing
