"Been wanting to try the veggie burger for a while based on a previous great recommendation. I think maybe my expectations were a little too high. It was rather large and I like all the standards: tomato, onion, etc. But the pepperjack cheese didn't have the spicing I like. The pretzel roll was just ok. The fries were a highlight of the meal. The broccolini was decent. As a beer advocate, I investigated the menu quite intently. It was good. Yet, I was in the mood for a cocktail. The one I wanted was unavailable. My backup was ok, not great. Yet we love this place and will be back."
