I was kind of worried about this place, but I finally decided to take the risk one day. The staff seemed sketchy, but they were actually very nice. The bar interior seemed like the food would be crappy bar food, and when they brought it out, it didn't look very impressive. However, the food was surprisingly good. Furthermore, the reviews I've encountered online have been really good as well. So if you are on 23rd and you need to escape that precious Portland pretentiousness, or you just want to sit down and get some drinks or a burger and fries, give this place a shot.
