It is a large restaurant with a small bar, in a long building that feels like a manufactured home and used to be a church. The restaurant has been open for about 5 years, and has a slightly formal but also comfortable neighborhood feel. The food is quite good, and I much enjoyed the Meat Combo (Beef Tips, Gored Gored, Kitfo, Quanta Fir Fir, and Qey Wot). The bar, well, not so much. The woman working the bar while I was there convincingly debunked the theory that you can't really mess up a Gin & Tonic. But they do appear to feature a very strong pour for a low price, and on weekends they turn into a nightclub (perhaps with slightly more experienced bartenders).
