  • Fill up on the Knock Burger, 10 ounces of Angus beef topped with sauted onions and Muenster cheese.
  • Charmingly handsome gay men and karaoke. Enough said.
  • Ask for Evan at the bar, he makes great drinks! :)
  • Best crab cake small plate in the city
  • Must have the crab cakes!
  • I had fun gotta go again.
  • Knock, knock! Who's there? A sophisticated dining establishment with a predominantly (older) gay clientele. I have yet to try the food, but the cheery bar staff can make a mean vodka gimlet.
  • Try the Stuffed Burger & Fries
  • Try the Asparagus Fries
  • Try the Lobster Mac 'N Cheese - Yes please!!!
  • Like Cheers for the gays, only with karaoke.
  • Mind the short bartenders when ordering drinks, to avoid spillage you may have to reach across the bar further ;-P
  • You can't beat the outside seating. It's the place to see and be seen. Say hello to the handsome bartenders.
  • Always a bit pricey, but giant portions and tasty new menu compliment the copious eye candy. Try the Pork "Wings".
  • Good food, comfortable bar and strong drinks. what's more to want? :-)
  • Their Impossible Burger is DELICIOUS! Great service and atmosphere.
  • Happy Hour
  • Great place for a drink. Or dinner. Or just a snack between bars. The outside seating on the corner is perfect for watching the boys go by
  • Filet was good but not $32 good... You get what you pay for with the drinks- totally worth it!
  • Great higher end relaxed atmosphere for the gay who wants to see and be seen without the overpacked loud nature of many other gay bars.
