Loved the big windows on the street side. We had a couple of beers and the 4 mini burgers, which were very delicious and just the right size to accompany our beers. Good quick and friendly service despite the crowded environment.

Great place for beer and bar food. Highly recommend their burgers, French Dip, and wings. A good place too to grab a beer while killing time waiting for a reservation at one of the many restaurants nearby.

We have eaten here many times and for the most part have walked away stuffed to the gills. My husband loves the Philly Cheesesteak, while I go for the French Dip. But the other night I thought I'd venture out and try the Chicken Ranch...More

They have outside seating where people had pets with them, but I think only service animals are permitted inside. Hope this helps.
