Great menu options. Wonderful wait staff and friendly booking accommodations. I'd come here time and time again.

Loved the outside seating arrangement especially the one near the walk way!The food seemed okay though! Maybe a bit more priced for the taste/ quantity. Not the best place to go for a breakfast!

This place was great!! My husband and I went here for brunch and I really enjoyed everything I had! The churros were soooo good! As was their avocado toast! The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the server wasn’t very attentive, and my husband was served some very burnt toast! Like obviously burnt black toast that you wouldn’t expect a restaurant to serve you! Other than that, I really enjoyed dining here and plan on returning!

Fries were cold AND old. Black bean burger was disgusting- it was just beans and rice mushed together? Buffalo chicken sandwich was ok. If you get the pretzel with cheese sauce, the sauce tastes way too beer-y... Was told that they wouldn’t be able to accommodate to a party of 2- walked into the restaurant and the whole thing was empty. Also, not a good place to celebrate a birthday! Overpriced and overhyped, with very slow service - won’t be returning and do not recommend.


Food was ok not special. It was busy so some wait for drinks. Underwhelming.


The salmon special was excellent! Our server was great and super pleasant. We will be back!


Dinner with son and the food was just OK. Nice clean restaurant.

Good food, nice setting for dinner. Be ready to spend some money on quality food. Seemed short staffed but they still kept up with lots of customers.

Outstanding location for a date night - great food, relaxing atmosphere, and the patio dining was a nice bonus. Our server Tricia took excellent care of us. We'll definitely come back!

Chicken wings with the korean sauce was so good

opentable dinner

Food was big what we ordered. But if you put that aside, place had a good atmosphere


Dropped daughter off at U of I on Saturday and took her here to breakfast on Sunday. We were lucky enough to sit outside. Such a beautiful day and super lovely outdoor seating area. Exceeded my expectations. Food was excellent. Staff were all friendly and helpful. This will be our "go-to" when we come for our visits with her.

Dinner on Saturday and brunch on Sunday were both excellent. Sweet pea penne with chicken, chocolate cake, and Liquid Sunshine were delicious. Steak frites melt in your mouth. Hot cakes and steak burrito were a great brunch for a great price. Jonathon provided excellent service. Atmosphere is relaxing. Popcorn is a nice touch. Great experience every time.

I ordered the Wedge Salad and was disappointed with the quantity of blue cheese and bacon. The dressing was average at best and would not recommend the salad. My wife ordered the hamburger and it was cooked perfectly and tasted great. The 2-stars are because of the Wedge Salad. Don’t skimp on blue cheese and bacon.


Good assortment of brunch items on the menu Great service.
