If you have a burning question that has not been answered here, please e-mail it to us and we wil do our best to get you up to speed.


Do you accept Bitcoin?

No. While we have left the 90s behind by ditching our Fax machine, we are only willing to offer virtual meals for virtual currency. For real food and drink you can go old-school and pay with cash or be a little more modern and tender your debit or credit card. For your convenience we have a no-fee ATM on site.

Why can't I get a reservation?

We don't take reservations. Going out is supposed to be fun, so channel your inner spontaneity and show up unannounced. More on reservations and group bookings can be found here.

Do you have a gluten-free menu?

Although we do not have a separate gluten-free menu, many of our items are gluten free or can be easily altered to make them gluten-free. To make meal choices easier, we have a "food bible" that lists all menu item ingredients. This is available to help guests that may have dietary restrictions.
