Met friends for supper one night. Good size menu to choose from. The White Pizza was excellent! The craft beer selection was huge! Everyone enjoyes their meals, servixe was excellent. Will definitely go back next time in Salt Lake City.

Live music was excellent, fun atmosphere. Not my favorite so far when it comes to the veggie burger, but the sweet potato fries and the spicy fry sauce that go with them are a must try. The drink menu is more like a mutli-page booklet....More
