Nice menu options. Had 2 burgers, the chicken, a tuna tarre tar app, one glass of one and the bill was over $100..... a bit step for a college restaurant. They should have a few student selections of lesser cost on the menu. Glad we sat off to the side because the main room seemed very noisy. That being said.... food was very good. The breads amazing !
