To be honest, we were not expecting much just going by the exterior of the building. However, once we entered, we were quite surprised by the decor. Further suprised by the greating we recieved. Our waiter was nothing short of delightful. Made sure we had what we wanted, when we wanted it. The food was outstanding. Best ribeye I've ever had, and I've had a lot. Best dining experience I've had in a long time. My girlfriend did nothing but boast about the entire experience to her friends. It was the best Valentine's day either of us had ever experienced.

We had been at Hardware previously and enjoyed the food and this time was no exception. Even as a somewhat "picky" eater, the small plates were fantastic. The food was not just good, the presentation was equally well done. The waitress was helpful, fun and personable. We will definitely place this on our list of places to frequent on a more regular basis.

I love PB&J. It’s a great place to watch a game. However, when there is a DJ for game night, the noise level is far too loud. You can’t talk to the person next to you at all.
