We stopped here on a whim. Immediate first impression - it was excessively noisy which was further compounded by the fact that they seated us directly under a speaker which was playing music at an obnoxious volume. While we entertained the thought of going elsewhere...More

Visited the bar for drinks before a show. The staff were really fun, the crowd was lively and the wine was good. Didn't eat anything so can't comment on the food but looked like typical pub fare. Would come back again!

Stopped by a little before 4P for a late lunch. About 12 people in the dining area (almost empty) and another dozen or so in the bar area. Our first server (name unknown) took our order. Drinks arrive relatively quickly. She must have gone off...More
