  • The happy hour food deals are great. The mac and cheese is outstanding.
  • The mushroom, beef barley soup is amazing! !
  • Happy hour appetizers are great but you can run up a bill! Outdoor seating is good people viewing!
  • The bar is great service, ever when they get backed up, the manager will jump behind the bar.
  • Sweet bar menu
  • Always show up on a Thurs./Friday (TGIF SJ Style!!) by no later than 4PM in order to snag a great table - indoors until May - and then outdoor on their patio from June through Fall!! Killer views...
