We stopped for lunch and had a selection of pizzas and sandwiches. The duck burrito was quite tasty. The menu was several steps up from ordinary bar food. The craft beer selection was extensive. Service was friendly and relaxed.

The restaurant is on a busy road in Davis Square. Location is good. The salmon was very bland. The hanger steak was ok. Pizza was good! Drinks good.
