A Yelp review:

This place is the bomb. It's a gastropub which means it's a pub that puts a lot of emphasis on the food rather then just serving basic food options. Some menu highlights: Raspberry Beret burger is one of the best burgers I have ever had. They start with a fresh ground chuck and hand make the burger then cook to a perfect Medium Well. No frozen patty at this place!!! Then they put peanut butter on the bun and add a Jalapeño raspberry jam on the burger. Topped with lettuce and candied bacon. At first this sounds strange but let me tell you, I don't care who you are or what you like you must try this burger. The flavors complement each other perfectly with the sweet and savory tastes. I did not get any heat with this I would call it very mild so don't let the Jalapeño Raspberry scare you, you won't taste it. Instead of fries I got the fresh made citrus coleslaw and it was fantastic. I could eat this all day long. Chopped red cabbage, celery, green onions thinly sliced carrots in a citrus french vinaigrette.

We also had the riley steak sandwich which was also very tasty and the BLT which has a garlic aioli and candied bacon which is super tasty. Next time I will want to try the full leaded belly.

The manager (David??) was working the bar and my drink was never empty before he asked me for a new one.   The guy seemed to be in a great mood. Made the night very enjoyable. I highly recommend this place for tourists and locals alike!!
