A few of my friends and I had dinner and thought it was a pretty good bar & restaurant with a few downers. The design was interesting with a bar counter situated in the center of the restaurant and cushy booths. It also resembled an English-styled pub, so it attracted a hip crowd. Most of the drinks were reasonably priced (pints at $6), only some mixed drinks and wine were a bit pricier. The food, though, was a hit-or-miss. What I considered a miss was food that was definitely edible but not memorable from a foodie's perspective. For example, the smoked sausage on Yukon mashed potatoes was a total miss because both the sausage and sauce were too sweet for a typically savory dish. The burger for $12 was pretty good except for its thick bun that was also too sweet (just go for a yummy side of fries instead). Some dishes that were excellent were the rock shrimp and scallion fritters and the lightly battered catfish that are hard to find elsewhere. So I can see myself going back for more catfish and giving some other items a try (there's a possibility that some menu items are so good that you would want to go back again and again) but there are also menu items that are disappointing. Overall, I think the restaurant has a great concept in serving lots of drinks like a bar but actually having some decent restaurant food (not enough LA bar & restaurants are like that). I would suggest sticking to the menu items that are more bistro fare than the ones that are more pub fare. Also, I thought that conversations were getting so loud that I couldn't hear what my friends were saying (possibly the design of the restaurant carries sound too well). Lastly, I didn't have any problem finding parking the two times that I have been there. I just parked on the corner where there was some metered parking.
Pros: Catfish, Rock Shrimp & Scallion Fritters, Drink Selection
Cons: Smoked Sausage
