First time here, on recommendation of mother-in-Law who has lunch here 2x. It’s more casual and louder than I expected, with a bit of university vibe. The staff are all young and very friendly. The cocktails are inventive - the Mules were spicy ginger flavored....More

The front desk clerk at the Hyatt had positive comments on the Culinary Dropout. I'm happy we listened to him. The food was excellent. Our service (Carissa) was awesome and had a great knowledge of the menu.

It accommodates both. When we were leaving there was a couple sitting in the outside patio with twins about 2 years old and she had enough room for her double stroller and the kids were having a good time.
