    This was my long time favorite restaurant, I used to say I could eat there everyday. However a few months ago, the menu started changing and some of my fave dishes were removed and very sadly missed! (like Portabello Tacos and the delicious Plaintains Foster.. i was addicted. The server said 'no more icecream'). Prices were also increased on many items. My other stand-by was Chili Cheese Fries, an appetizer which is notably shrinking in portion (almost by half portion, and increased price). On a recent visit there on a overcrowded Saturday night, my party of 4 waited 2 HOURS for a table. We finally were served near 10pm and famished! The fake 'chicken' wrap I ordered was average, it came with a pickle slice and one choice of side (I had the smoked gouda mac n' cheese which was more like plain ol' mac n' cheese and not so smoky as it used to be). On the upside, the Specials menu is usually great for fish dishes, and the frozen peanut butter pie is tasty too. I must mention the margaritas also taste different, maybe it depends on who's making them. I prefer it shaken, rather than a soda nozzle put in the glass. Overall, I will continue to eat there, though not as frequently and try to avoid the weekend crush.

    A great place for where you can go in your bike clothes and not be out of place, you'd likely be the minority in street clothes. I was overloaded with choices, which is rare for a cycling vegetarian such as myself. The staff was very friendly, the food great. Loved the plantains and the Bloody Mary (it has Guinness in it).

    Man, what a find. It's so small and low key, we didn't have any trouble going on a Saturday night and sitting at the bar. We didn't have the food, but the beer was excellent. Three Floyds on tap and $3 on Friday, Bells Two-hearted $3 on Saturday. Excellent.
