First off, we will definitely return!

The wild boar chili was about as good as it gets! PHENOMENAL! They use some unique flavor combinations but don’t be afraid. Just give something a little out of your comfort zone a try and I think you’ll appreciate it. The short ribs are one of their signature dishes and that too is awesome. The roasted chicken was great as well. A new addition to the menu was pork belly. This is where they seemed to stray from their path a bit. It seemed like this was a rush to add to the menu without enough thought. As a result, this was very chewy and tough. We really hope they don’t give up on it, but you can’t cook pork belly in 5 minuets no matter how hard you try.

Overall, great place, good atmosphere, great staff, and a hearty yet still unique menu.

Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed.

have not had a full meal here, but will say that the drinks are well prepared and the hot wings and other appetizers are just fine, so if you're hanging around Heavenly Villiage, this place is just fine.

Meals were OK and certainly not fancy or flash. Pub style offerings with a limited menu range and not over priced. Overall satisfaction level was average and basically you get what you pay for. Dined indoors for dinner due to climate and maybe the outside dining option would be a better atmosphere.

This place was the 2nd choice for the night. The first place was packed, this place wasn't. I understand now. Servers were unattentive, but they wetter friendly. Ordered the tri tip sandwhich. For $13 I was expecting at least a decent sized sandwhich, this sandwhich was maybe 6 inches long. The tri tip was a little on the bland side. Fries were good. Next time gonna wait the hour to eat@ the other place.

This place has a serious identity crisis going on: on the one hand, it's a tavern that looks like a typical college town watering hole, with a big bar, margaritas and servers in leggings. On the other hand, it has $50 entrees with sides not included and pretends to be a fine dining place if you judge it by the menu.

Both are fine, but you have to make a choice: you can't have $50 steaks and paper napkins, you really can't. Denny's and IHOP give you cloth dinner napkins.

The food is ok, but nothing to write home about. The drinks are very expensive and again, passable, but not spectacular.

This place should slash the prices in half and then it's all going to be in the right place. Can be the other way around, too, but I really don't think it can pull off being a fine dining experience, sorry.
