Pub
“My favorite bar in Fort Wayne. The food is great, and the atmosphere is also great! The 100yr old back bar is amazing! Everything is good, they usually have a small seafood bar on Friday nights. My favorites are the black bean nacho deluxe and the grilled tenderloin sandwich, but truly everything is good. ”

Diner
“My favorite place to eat downtown! The owner Angie is a real character and is great at fun and witty banter. There are only 15 seats so you may have to wait. I wouldn’t recommend for groups bigger than 3-4, it is the type of place that people will slide down a seat so you can sit together. My favorite is the “Garbage “ and it is a local favorite. They are open Monday-Saturday 6am-2pm. They lock the door at 2pm!! Tell Angie that Eric sent you and that she shouldn’t lock me out!😂”
