Reservations

Thank you for considering spending an evening with us!

We are a neighborhood bar in downtown Lorain, Ohio. Our space is small and the majority of the house is set for walk-in business.  We have a very limited reservation space. 

That said, here is our reservation policy:

Reservations are taken up to one month in advance.  The number of seats available for reservations per night is limited.

We have only two areas to seat parties of 6 or more, please contact us and make a reservation if you are coming with a large group.

During patio season (Memorial Day to Labor Day) reservations for the patio will NOT be accepted.  Patio will be walk-in ONLY.

Reservations must be made in advance (no “day of” reservations).

For the sake of service and expediency, we reserve the right to present parties of 6 or more one check.

Our house is your house. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your experience.
