Reviews

Good selection of beers and decently priced food. Would give 5 stars except service has been pretty bad both times I’ve been here. Waiters disappear and refills are nonexistent.

This is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Columbia especially for a college student budget. The Sunday brunch is very dank as well. I recommend the shrimp and grits with sausage. Not to mention that it's the best restaurant that's walking distance from Greek village.

Great spot for lunch
I met a businessman here for lunch last week upon his advice. I was favorably surprised. I got a meatball sandwich that was quite good and my associate got a French dip sandwich that looked really good. We sat out on the deck and it...More ... read more

Out of towner review: beer was rather expensive and food and atmosphere were decent.

Fries were average. I ordered the tofu bbq but the tofu chunks wer ... read more

The place is wooden with seating outside and in and like a sports bar, it has many televisions, which I am not a fan of because, quite frankly, I want to talk to people I'm eating with.

The food was awesome, service was a bit slow; our waitress seemed to have tables all over the restaurant and was unable to keep all of her customers happy. They should have given her a set station and not tables outside as well as inside, we barely saw her three times our entire visit.
