A very cozy, fun atmosphere. We arrived when it wasn't too crowded but it filled up pretty quick. The server was awesome. Good humor, detailed recommendations, and prompt. Prices were high, but the food was very good. We shared deep fried oysters. Most of the party had burgers, but I had the carbonara with scallops. The noodles were soft but not mushy, and the bacon flavor was strong. It was very salty - good at first, but by the end of the meal a bit overwhelming. I'm not sure if get the scallops again. Overall, a nice place to visit once in a while.

Stopped in for a bite to eat and a drink before a show at DPAC. We opted to get a few small dishes -- did the mushrooms, roasted beets and brussel sprouts. 10/10 recommend all of them. The Beets were particularly delicious. Cocktails were tasty and refreshing! We loved it so much we stopped back in after the show. Try the gin fizz for sure!

Reviews say get the burger. Got the burger. Great burger! Our other food was amazing as well. Not disappointed to find this place so close to DPAC for dinner before the show. Only draft beers are crafts and cocktails were perfect. Nice vibe in this place. Thanks to all the folks here for making our night memorable!

This place lives up to the hype. Everything they put on the table was great. Food and drinks alike. I'd seen them show up some of those best burger lists in Durham you see every now and then and decided to give it a shot. I'm shook. Their offering may have me shaking up my own personal best burger rankings. Their inclusion on any best burger list is legitimate. Bonus points: my gf doesn't drink. She asked for a mocktail. Server her asked for a flavor profile. Idk what they served her, but I do know she couldn't stop talking about it.

My FAVORITE restaurant in Durham. Daniel and his staff have created magic. ✨ The most delicious menu. Seasonal offerings and god ole standards like their unbelievable cheeseburger and fries. Always have the best veggie dishes. The cocktails are out of this world. Definitely delightful concoctions and boy they heavy pour… if you get more than two, get an Uber lol. If you sit at the bar, it’s dinner and a show. The bartenders are on point with their skills. My go to restaurant for celebrating or just to have a great meal. Go early, this place gets packed. Just yum 🤤

Although a bit cramped, this is also what makes this place what it is. A good place to visit. Had a decent sized group and all were seated comfortably. Enjoyed local beer Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout which was really good, and the the House Burger which was spectacular and much better than anticipated. Would return for sure.

No reservations but good reason. Small place. Food is exceptional and always on point. Drinks fabulous, creative and tasty! There is an Annex restaurant but opens later. Completely different vibe then upstairs with same food. Different bartenders, dance floor, eclectic look and feel downstairs. Upstairs is 50s bar scene, intimate, a little noisy, such good service!
