Recently expanded parking (December 2015) has been a blessing and a curse...great for business, but now its always crowded. Love the bar and restaurant, the staff is terrific, as are the owners. Food ranges from fair to good (especially the sausage soup), but the beer selection/quality and music make this a great local hangout. They've really done a lot to expand the quality and quantity of their craft beer selection and service. My favorite bar, and I'm fortunate to have some good places to chose from.

Parking here is really limited and pretty scattered. Nice interior and comfortable seats. The staff is definitely in a hurry to get you in and out, regardless of if they're busy or not. Not really an inviting, friendly place. The server I had knew nothing about the beer on tap. My nice craft beer was served in a frozen glass -- not really the recommended presentation. I had a decent Cuban sandwich (decent for Connecticut standards, at least). Overall, a "decent" place, but not one I would really go back to.
