For a space that's always changing names and owners, it somehow manages, with each iteration, to provide a relaxed and intimate vibe. The place must have a good kitchen, because the food is always well-prepared no matter who's running it, whether they're going for straight bar food or something more. It's a true neighborhood bar in that sense. You wouldn't drive out of your way to go here, but it's good if you live in the area and want someplace laid-back to meet up with friends, grab a drink, and possibly eat some food. It just might have a different name the next time you all meet up.
