I went to 8 oz Friday night with a party of 15. We had reservations for 11 and it they were really accomodating about the extra people. Other than that...I have a mixed review., which leans towards a bad review. My drinks were great, but I recommend you stick to the alcoholic beverages. My water came with a shard of glass. Yep that's The manager offered me two drinks in return. Are you kidding me??? Like two drinks can make up for the fact that I almost swallowed a piece of glass.

I ordered the short rib grilled cheese. I was not impressed. The short ribs overwhelmed any sense of cheese in the sandwich. Unfortunately, the short ribs weren't tasty enough to compensate. My bf ordered the estansia grass fed burger. It was cooked the way he asked for it, but he still thought the counter was a better choice. I had a bite of his burger and I agreed. It was nothing special. The heirloom tomato ketchup tasted like heinz 57...which I'm a fan of, but hey if you're advertising the ketchup on the menu than it better be special.

The prices at 8 oz were reasonable. But In-n out burger would have worked for me. My boyfriend makes a better grilled cheese. I had high hopes for this place. I had never been to table 8, and was hoping for the best. Oh...wait I forgot about what I liked. The potato skins were good...not great, but good.

Next time, i'll just go get some chili cheese fries from tops
