Visited on a Monday happy hour recently.

First & foremost, accept that the hipster quotient here will be high (servers & customers). If you can ignore most of the self -important douchey customers you 'll be fine. Bartender was great even tho he fit the hipster mold to a T.

Tight menu of high -end burgers, sandwiches & bar stuff. Reasonably priced. $3 happy hour beers are worth the visit itself.

Got the Maui burger on the pretzel roll (optional...splurge the 50c & get it...makes for a great sammich). Absolutely heavenly. Would rank it as one of my fave all -time, and ive had quite a few burgers in my day. Every bite was terrific, I didn't want it to end. Quality of ingredients & skill in preparation is obvious. Delicious fresh crispy fries served with it.

Well thought out beer selection too. Ranged from locals, sessionables, numerous IPAs, geek beers....totally dug it. From what I could observe, it's constantly changing & curated by someone who knows alot about beer.

Loved this place & will definitely visit again. (1,034 characters)

Been here so many times. Right in the heart of downtown New Haven. Smaller sized location that gets packed very easily. Food is mostly burgers, but very well crafted. Solid rotating tap list of about 15 beers plus stuff in bottles. Worth a trip if you're in the area! (267 characters)

passing through New Haven so popped in and was pleasantly surprised. Not the largest selection i seen but everything on the list was worth the visit. Burgers were out of this world. I eat tons of burgers so it's rare that i get one that wows me, Cooked to perfection RAREinside and blackened on the outside. Staff was quick and friendly and knew there beer. Will gladly stop in again if im in the area, (405 characters)
