The good news is that they carry cider for gluten free patrons. House wines were mediocre. I had the flank steak, it was cooked very well but the gravy was very salty and the potatoes rather gloopy. \my husband had the St. Louis ribs that were described as "salthered in sauce" but they were rather dry. Nothing exciting about the... More

We LOVE the union but sadly I feel like it's gone downhill lately. The bartenders (Antonio, Ryan, Sierra, and Brittany) are awesome and totally willing to help however the older manager is always too quick to kick everyone out. I know there's laws about time to leave but 1:15??? Seriously? With a full bar rail? And to not order liquor?... More

Excellent food, great chef. Asked for low salt sateed greens. The chef himself came out to tell me the greens were precooked with salt. Great folks.

First time and we will definitely go back. We were pretty bummed that we were too tired to stay for the awesome live band, but we will definitely go back. Our server was very attentive, funny and made our dinner experience even better than it would have already been. There is a variety of food and since I am a... More

Wish we had gone to see a band, as out table was next to the band but we were too early. Dinner was good, nothing fantastic. Our server was training someone and they did a lot of talking off to the side, instead of refilling our drinks. Sadly, I don't think he was a great trainer. Will go back but... More

This is a very nice atmosphere with good food. I went during the middle of the day for a business meeting, however I see they offer a bandstand. I was told that a lot of local bands play here evenings and weekends. While not my cup o' tea, I can see why this is a favorite of many locals and... More

I enjoy the food there, it is a little pricey, but it is tasty. It is a regular spot for my son and I to stop at! We like the atmosphere.

We have become regulars here. The menu isn't huge, but everything is delicious. The atmosphere is great. Service is excellent. The evening music is so enjoyable. Sometimes it is a little too loud to converse with others at your table.

We had a great experience for lunch during the week. We all enjoyed our meals (kids cheeseburger and pasta, adults ate sausage mac'n'cheese and the sausages meal). Everything was delicious and we would return. Fun atmosphere in a cute section of town. Nick was a great waiter, super nice.
