We regularly go to this place for the charcuterie alone, and it hasn't disappointed us once. We prefer to order one board to share, as there's usually quite a bit and enough for us to both have a little of everything or to trade off things we don't like. We rarely find a pickled food on this menu item that we don't enjoy, and it is a wild array of options- a lot of it is best paired together. I think they haven't been preparing larger/shared boards because of the current health concerns, so we did get individual identical boards in our last visit. It's always an adventure, always a twist, never disappointing, and we honestly love the variety.

We stopped by for brunch and have nothing but great things to say! Great drink specials and the best hollandaise sauce I've ever tasted. Lovely servers and a great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend!

It was alright. Food was alright. Atmosphere was very good! This is not a place to get burgers if that's what you're looking for. Steak and salad seems to be the focus. We had macaroni and cheese, and Caesar salad. The macaroni was the better of the two however it still pales in comparison to Fork n' Pork up the street.

Great food and service. After hiking Newcastle perimeter we were looking for a yummy meal and we weren't disappointed. Attentive service to satisfy a 8 year old as well. Highly recommend.

Just had dessert here after dinner at a different spot. The hot brownie was delicious! Wish we ate dinner here. I'll have to come back.
