To our dear guests,
We have made the unbelievably hard choice as the concerns over COVID-19 increase to close temporarily. The safety of our staff, our business and especially you, our guests, is what’s most important right now. As a 100% employee-owned company we take this step to ensure that our employees have a secure place to return to work.
This is a time for us to be good humans and give support to our families and neighbors. When normalcy returns our team of familiar faces will welcome you in with open arms, ready to pour some cocktails, serve some wonderful dishes and celebrate the return of community!
Until then, should you wish to show your love to our team, you can buy a gift card online HERE
