This place is all about whiskey, wine, sliders, and a good time. Exactly what Union Street needed! There are many healthy choices one can make and still have a great time. The food is unassuming, but really good. The sliders are small. The spinach-strawberry is delicious (and organic). I would recommend ordering one regular slider and two protein style with a small salad. The wines are chosen carefully and service is super friendly. I look forward to their lunch and brunch service¸ where I can wear a sundress and sit in the back bar without turning blue from the cold.
