The food was so delicious! The hummus plate is a gigantic order that could definitely be split between four people. Their pricing was fairly decent and there were so many dishes that I wish I could have tried. Friendly service as well.

Tried brunch here on a Sunday and was not disappointed! We were the only table when we arrived and there were 8 of us. We started with mimosas, Irish coffees and two of the Shaksukas to share. The Shaksuka was so amazing and large enough to feed us all, so much flavor. For our meals we had Sausage Biscuits & Gravy, French Omelette, Iron Tail BUrger and Steak and Eggs which we all shared and loved everything. Our server was very attentive and the food was so delicious. We had a great time and would certainly be back!

Really great place! Love seeing a Rusty Nail on the cocktail menu. Friendly bartender, waiter, other customers and all around atmosphere. Delicious oysters and amazing butternut squash soup. One of the best burgers in Buffalo too. Also, the gnocchi was delicious.
