Stopped by to have dinner with a cold NC craft beer. Mission accomplished!! I love the U shape bar and the feel of the establishment. You can tell this is a local hangout but gave me a warm southern welcome. Two bartenders were very friendly and followed up to check on my meal after a few bites. I will stop... More

Did takeout tonite vs usual eat in. Thai chicken wrap good as always and tried the black and bleu steak sandwich. Sandwich a bit grisly. But, the real shock was the up charge $1 for fruit, not mentioned on the menu, as well as the $1 and $4 discrepancies, respectively, for the wrap and sandwich, not accurate on the online... More

This place is one of Winston-Salem's best kept secrets. While it is very small inside for eating, it has a great patio if the weather is nice. It has an excellent beer selection and all the food I've had from here has been good and prices very reasonable. I HIGHLY recommend the crab cake sandwich. It's the best crab cake... More

Went for Sunday brunch. Food was fine (we had a sausage omelet and breakfast burrito), but not outstanding. They do have a varied beer list though, and prices are good - it would be hard to find a cheaper brunch option in town. Still, I'd only go back for a beer, not an omelet.

So I've been here many times. We remembered the food fondly, but it disappointed tonight. The menu said "Hand breaded chicken breast", but what I got was chicken tenders. The item description said Buffalo Chicken Sandwich but it came with no sauce and the bun was so thick all I could taste was bread. On top of all that- I... More

We had the wings and the Thai Chicken Wrap - both scrumptious - we continue to visit this restaurant - it is friendly, and the food tasty

I used to come here quite often, and although good, I probably took it for granted. It got late the other night and most local restaurants were either closed or close to closing, so I decided to visit my old hang out. I was very glad I did !!! The food was once again delicious and reasonably priced. There were... More

We were there for lunch and had a couple of great burgers! I had mine with lettuce, tomato & mayo. This is what I always order so that I can compare "apples with apples". My husband had cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles & bacon. Our burgers were very flavorful. It was cooked as ordered and came with a side of fries.... More
