The iconic local gathering space with a first class bar, great cocktails, a fine craft beer selection and well-crafted bites, Local Craft Food and Drink on Restaurant Row is a Great Gables Guide reader favorite. The Happy Hour specials include cheeseburger fries, and tasty chicken bites in three variations: Al Pastor, Buffalo and classic fried.
Brunch on the weekends, from noon to 4pm, features chicken and waffles, french toast, omelets, and triple-stack lemon curd pancakes. A kids menu is also available.
Starters of note include the cornbread and honey butter, mac and cheese, kimchi fries, smoked fish dip and the charcuterie board. Burgers are the strong suit, but the spicy chicken sandwich and the fish and chips are favorites.
The craft cocktails and beer selection deserve special attention. There’s always a craft cocktail on draft, ready to serve, which varies by the day. Try a Rum Old Fashioned, the Half Baked, the Smoking Section or the Voodoo Child. Craft beers are selected by the season, with special attention to local producers.
