“Great place to ??, nice atmosphere,attentive staff and bartenders.Ordered a fajita al carbon, the fajita flavor was off, .The problem was that the beef looked gray not freshly cooked off the grill. Gray looking beef fajitas mean they are not fresh! I'm guessing they pre cooked then warmed up which is a no go for me!“

“Everything about this place was amazing. If you're into hidden gems with a speakeasy vibe, this is the place for you. From the moment we walked through the doors we felt right at home in this cozy space. The staff and owner(s) should be proud of the guest experience this establishment provides. So first off, thank you all - we had a fabulous evening!We ordered our standard classics: My husband had the Hemingway and I ordered the Boulevardier with Bullet. Both cocktails we beautifully crafted and perfect to the last drop. Our server Brooke was truly fantastic! She easily guided us through the menu, giving us dinner recs as well. We had a hankering all week for tiki drinks and she pointed us to a couple that we on the menu. No shocker, these did not disappoint and were perfectly balanced. My husband is hell-bent on recreating his drink at home because it was just that good!During our time here we were treated to a live singer and her accompanying pianist. When we first arrived we were one of just a handful of folks. However, after we got our first beverages the space started to fill up. With the Bar, Lounge chairs and Tables lining the wall being full of patron, the space still remained calm and relaxing.All in all, this place is must if you appreciate craft cocktails.Note: We went on a Tuesday evening and had reservations for 6 o'clock in the Lounge Seating. I always opt for reservations if available. it's honestly a win-win for everyone. I cannot speak for weekend, but Walk-ins were being accommodated on the night we went.Thank you all again!“

“Ahi Tuna Empanadas were excellent, although a little difficult to eat without making a mess. The Moscow Mule they’ve got on tap was killer as well. The vibe was good, but the weather coupled with Valentine’s Day had it a little slow. I could see potential on a warm sunny day at this venue.“

“Got there Thursday a little after 5, for dinner and craft beer. Sat at the bar. The bartender Cora was excellent. Came by often enough that my water class was never empty, but not so often that it was annoying.Shrimp app, mahi dinner were both great. I'd go back for the food.There was a nice selection of draft beer available. I only tried one house beer, the black IPA. It was nothing special. The other beers were ok. I would not go back for the beer.The only real problem was how long it took to get my food. The place wasn't that crowded, but it took well over a half hour to just get my appetizer. Dinner followed quickly after that, though.“

And they have Trivia on the TV, sports, a jukebox but not loud DJ music. Like my neurodivergent friend liked it. Plus, I bet it's awesome in the summer with volleyball and such outside. It's really cool. The service was great. People were friendly. I haven't had the food. I think they don't serve food. But like I said, I've been here once. I plan to go againn. Neighborhood bar vibes are the best.“
