Customer Reviews

What they say
  • The food here is crafted, not just cooked. You will be buying art, not just food. And the beer barnacles will change your life.
    -Anna B.

  • This place is perfect. Fresh, top-quality ingredients, creative flavor combinations, skillfully prepared, and I'm pretty sure almost everything is made in-house. Prime beer selection. On top of that, the service is great and the restaurant is always very clean.
    -E.C.

  • This is a very good restaurant by any standards but especially in Santa Cruz. The quality of ingredients is high in my opinion and the flavor of the sandwiches is unique. Let's face it, we can all make a sandwich but that doesn't make one an expert on building layers of flavor and texture in a new and different way. This is a well run business with a lot of attention to detail and pride in the product and the business.
