  • Avey S.Good in-house brewed beers; best barkeeps in TC in Kathy and Marco. Stuffed mushroom caps are must-have. Buffalo-style wings are the best outside of, um, Buffalo. Mmm.

    55555 by Kyle S.


  • Paul A.Brisket sandwich comes with a sauce that is too overwhelming

    55555 by Paul A.


  • Michelle R.Very put off by the fact that a 2 person party "was not allowed" to sit in a booth, as "they are reserved for parties of 4 only." Wtf??? Really?! So much for keeping the customer happy.

  • Amanda R.My boyfriend and I had the Mac n Cheese and Asian salad... Horrible! Mac and cheese had no flavor and my "toasted" almonds were burnt. There were too many to pick out. The food is over priced.

    22222 by Amanda R.

    55555 by Chris C.

    55555 by Brian M.
