The Hours: Happy hour is offered Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 4 to 6 p.m.
The Deal: A selection of $4.95 appetizers. $1 off beers and mixed drinks.
The Scene: If the weather's cooperative, definitely opt for a seat outdoors, as the dining room surrounding the restaurant's main bar can feel a little claustrophobic during prime time. The shady, enclosed patio features pretty, brick-enclosed archways and stalks of greenery to set the scene.

The Food: Happy hour food specials include "12 Pack Buffalo Hot Wings," "Black and Tan Nachos," goat-cheese artichoke dip, a trio of dips, beer-battered chicken tenders and beer-battered onion rings. We opted for the restaurant's take on two traditional American appetizers: the artichoke dip and the chicken tenders.
