Reviews for the side bar

Our waitress was nice and honest! If she hasn't tried it she told us...which is rare for many restaurants! She gave her opinions about the things she has eaten, various sides as well as the popular items from the menu. I have to get used to the QR code as a form of looking at the menu but to remain sanitary it is the new norm.

The service, drinks, and atmosphere were wonderful but the food was bland. The individual ingredients were quality and tasty, but somehow the complete sandwiches were underwhelming.

An underrated spot in downtown Royal Oak. Every time I’ve gone has been lovely.The service is always on point. The people are friendly, patient, kind and attentive. Hard to beat!They’ve got a great selection of food, including vegan and vegetarian options, and substitutes for some menu items to accommodate any number of lifestyles.The appetizers are all great, but the pretzel bites or chickpea delight are my recommendations. For entrées, there’s a long list of good eats, full review
