Been here just once but this is now one of my favorite restaurants in the area. Lots of craft brews, a tapas-like menu, great overall menu selection and super friendly service. I especially liked the Szechuan calamari and tomato buratta.

This is a small, quaint, trendy type of restaurant. We sat in the bar area during the afternoon on a weekend. It was pretty slow that day since it was very cold. We had great service from the bartender. There are many different types of...More

Been looking for a good place to eat when we visit my son at school in Flint. So glad we tried this place as there are very few options in the area. Menu has a great variety and everything we tried was wonderful. Cowboy burger...More
