The location and environment are really nice. The food follows their focus on local and simple. Unfortunately it lacks flavour of any kind. It's not bad, just not good or interesting. There are a few exceptions like the crispy cauliflower and probably a few others...More

We came for our best friend's birthdays. 21 girls and A LOT of bottomless mimosas (only $20!). Our server Evan was an absolute DREAM! He was so attentive, kind, and truly made the entire day. The food is unbelievable, I cannot recommend this place enough!!!

Restaurant atmosphere was nice. The John burger was good, not what I had expected, the show string fries didn't seem hand cut. Overall, good experience.
