The outdoor space is excellent for grabbing a beer on a nice day. The menu was just redone... food is surprisingly good for a bar....definitely better than bar food and quite a few options that are lighter and healthier. The Patio is especially nice. For a quick lunch or beers after work, its a good choice!
Went for lunch. Cocktail was sub par...it was like a inexperienced teenager made the drinks. Waitress was not trained properly. Our food order (salads) were wrong. They were removed from our table by one waitress and a different waitress brought the same food back to us and said the kitchen removed the chicken and replaced it with shrimp! In what world is it OK to remove the food from our table, take it back to the kitchen, bring THE EXACT SAME DISH (slightly altered) back to us to eat?!!! They were supposed to remake the salad and bring is the correct order! Obviously we complained to the mgr. He was apologetic and embarrassed. Naturally, he took care of the meal, but there was NO WAY we were eating the food! We had made too many complaints and trips back to the kitchen. We went and grabbed some things at the Taste of Charlotte and gave the free salads to some less fortunate. I don't think anything was wrong with the salads...1
I only enjoyed drinks on the outdoor patio but the view of Charlotte on a beautiful Saturday night with the large moon nestled behind the buildings was delightful. A nice breeze that was just enough to make everything feel alive. It gets REALLY busy on weekend nights, but not necessarily a bad thing if you're looking to mingle and chat.
Lively bar with fabulous drinks and beer selection ad well as good food. We stopped in for some late night drinks and bite. The shrimp taco and edamae apps were delicious. Service was good especially for a pretty packed Saturday night after a Knights game. We will make this a regular stop when in town!
Really nice social atmosphere on a Saturday night! We enjoyed out time here with some wings and drinks. They were really busy but everything was ready quickly. Our waiter was great too. Definitely would consider going back!
