We sat outside. They have done a nice job with the patio in terms of providing an appealing setting by kind of blocking the view of the construction across the street. Street noise was moderate. The menu appears to be substantially reduced. Some of the favorites don't appear, like the flat bread pizza, lamb chop appetizers and a few others but what we did have was very good. Menu is probably limited because of the current covid situation. Broiled salmon was done perfectly and the Patty Melt Burger was excellent. Don't like the new fries. Not crispy enough and I really wouldn't call them fries. Have had them before and they are consistently kind of soft and mealy. They are more like potato skins. Will ask for extra crispy next time to see if that works. They had great fries in the cone shaped basket before the reopening. Hope they bring them back.

We loved this restaurant before the pandemic and it is even better now since it has a large outdoor patio with nicely spaced tables. The food is consistently good and the service is even better. We like the wings and burgers best, but there are lots of things to choose from. They have a large selection of beer and wine choices at various price points. Street parking is usually available at dinner, but they also validate at the nearby hotel garage. Try it!

“DO NOT” Appreciate the way they give you straws - all straws should be covered and stored in it’s paper coverings. With this dangerous COVID19 virus, a customer can open and tear off the paper and take the straw out of it’s cover!
This need to change immediately- do not like uncovered straws being place in my drink. When you ask for a straw - it is bought to you again uncovered!

food was burnt on the outside and raw on the inside. We were in a hurry and did not have enough time to send the food back. The waiter was not very attentive. Menu was really shortened and a lot of entries were missing. When asked about the menu, I was informed they were following CDC guide lines. I am not aware CDC specifies what you can serve on the menu. I checked when I got home and it only stipulates about social distancing. They serve fish sandwich and french fries with their burgers. They can not serve fish and chips due to CDC regulations. That was a bunch of BS.

I will not go back. This place has really gone down hill.

Service was excellent and prompt. Although there was only 10 people in the restaurant so it better have been. My waiter Wilson was very nice and explained everything well. Made good recommendations on the menu and was very courteous. The food was just...so so. Not bad by any means. Just nothing exhilarating. Can get anything on the menu and virtually any other restaurant. It was nice to try it out. But not likely to go out of my way to eat there again.

Wilson was an outstanding waiter who provided us with recommendations and knew when to check in and when to let us talk amongst ourselves. We really appreciate giving us a table that was in an area a bit quieter so we could hear each other - some of our group is hard of hearing. Good soup special, lovely salmon Caesar, fish and chips and the burger - all satisfying! There was a hiccup with having a coupon and half-off wine night, but Wilson handled it smoothly.
