    Paige and Gabby were our servers and they were phenomenal! I ordered the Hangover Bowl with extra chipotle aolie and my boyfriend had the burger delux. 10/10 recommend! Everything was delicious and the drinks were nice and strong! Can’t wait to come back!

    The back deck is an oasis! The staff was helpful when needed and allowed us to sit and enjoy our time when we were deep in conversation. Will definitely return.

    Perfect late lunch with the family. Lively bar, large flat screens all over with the games on and fantastic menu choices. Kudos to the kitchen for preparing great tasting dishes. This place takes bar food for to the next level.

    I love this little neighborhood restaurant and bar. The outside dining area is as good as it gets. Service was friendly, and prompt. Uniforms... well, like mother said.... Food was well presented, and very tasty although enough crostini to accommodate the tartare and burrata would have made them next level. Prices are good, drink menu shows thoughtfulness, with selections for just about anyone. My cocktail was tasty and beautiful (minus the fun straw.) Overall, what a great addition to the Lower Mills neighborhood.

    I love this place. We live in the neighborhood and come often and meet friends. Met very dear friends for lunch so not a huge crowd which was perfect for us. Unfortunately, the music was too loud but I could not ask for it to be lowered without causing a stir. That was my ONLY criticism. Wait staff is phenomenal. Food was great.

    Hi, Maddie was our waitress and was outstanding! The basketball game was on and their was music playing beforehand. Great atmosphere. then the basket ball game came on and it was loud and NO ONE in the court was paying attention to it. Only people at the outside bar area. Keep the music on in the outdoor court area for atmosphere and only play the game at the bar area please. Other than that, outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!

    Macy is the BEST!!! Exceptional service, honest and helpful recommendations (based on her extensive recall of our preferences) coupled with the friendliest most welcoming service. To be honest, I would love to see a few more choices on the menu, but Macy keeps us coming back for more (of the same)!
