  • Varadh JThe sweet corn ravioli is a must try here!

  • Leah J.Turkey pastrami on pretzel bread

    55555 by Leah J.

  • Jamie RI didn't particularly care for the pretzels. Pretty bland bread and way too salty. I got the kale butternut squash salad. It only had like 4 chunks of squash! For that price?? Won't do that again.

    55555 by Bunny B

    55555 by Louis B.

    55555 by Chelsea F.

  • Ref LPlace gets packed. Open table reservation let skip the line. Pretzel Fondue would've been great had cheese been more heated. For some reason the bar was holding up our drinks. Even empty. And canned.

    33333 by Ref L

  • Jay H.Coolest place to grab lunch in the area! Pretzels never disappoint. Try a smashed Irishman.

    55555 by Jay H.

    55555 by Matt B.

  • Sam W.Little pricy but excellent foof drinks! Great place of you want to splurge a little (;

    55555 by Sam W.

  • Bill OConnorGreat apps

    55555 by Bill OConnor

  • Ashley F.Pretzels! I think most of the appetizers are better than the entrees. Desserts are soooo good too. Great ambiance. Gets pretty loud the later in the night it gets. Love the seating and chandeliers.

    55555 by Ashley F.

    55555 by Ben H.

  • Zac F.Pretzel fondue is outstanding. Not one bad dish at this restaurant.

    55555 by Zac F.

  • Alan EThis place is run by criminals willing to defraud their employees. My best friend was a dishwasher there for 6+ months. They break health codes, and they refuse to pay him for his last 2+ weeks.

    22222 by Alan E

  • Paul N.I really dislike the fake waiting list

    22222 by Paul N.

    55555 by Lori L.

  • Jacob G.The fried chicken is too good to handle.

    55555 by Jacob G.

  • Taylor A.Love this place, just like all the other Fox restaurants! Mostly for the simple menu and live acoustic music on the weekends! They have a great happy hour too!

    55555 by Taylor A.

  • Catherine C.Pretzel Fondue is a reason to come, casual, trendy atmosphere is the reason to come again. Great drink specials, & live music. Have dinner and walk to Old Town.

    55555 by Catherine C.

  • Haley B.Live music is Fridays and Saturdays, super fun environment but it will be super LOUD then too. If you can handle the noise, order the fondue and after dinner don't miss the caramel popcorn.

    55555 by Haley B.

  • Catie H.The Pretzel Fondue is quite amazing. I have never come here and didn't like what I ordered. The service is always great and it's a fun place to hang out.

    55555 by Catie H.

  • EnriqueThere's a dude named Mike that had all his friends tell him they're staying home tonight because he's embarrassing and they don't like him.

    22222 by Enrique

  • Tonia J.The meatloaf was as good as promised. And the house chips and onion dip just as good.

    55555 by Tonia J.

  • Chelsea B.Awesome food! The pretzel fondue is the best thing ever. A little expensive if you're on a college budget, but totally worth it! Decent happy hour specials!

    55555 by Chelsea B.

  • Amber T.Amazing food! Probably because half the menu is dedicated to alcohol, however if your vegetarian you may have to think outside the box while trying to figure out what you can eat here.

    55555 by Amber T.

  • Heath D.Don't sit outside after dark the mist sprayers leave the seats and tables wet.....no bueno.

    22222 by Heath D.

  • Ricky P.Thirsty? Order the brown bag special. It's $1.95. It's basically cheap beer! Fun story behind the name. Drown your sorrows with the server that coined this concept. Cheers!

  • Marilyn W.Live music and Pretzel Bites. Need I say more?

    55555 by Marilyn W.

  • David L.Crispy shrimp Caesar salad hits the spot - though the shrimp is battered/fried, there's nothing greasy about it. (And as others have said, YES, the pretzels.)

    55555 by David L.

  • David L.Fried chicken has a distinctly strong honey taste, a little off-putting to me, my wife, & a friend. Nothing wrong with it per se, & perfectly prepared. Just not to our liking.
