I'm still in love with the Bye & Bye, well over a year after first visiting. My experience with the food is narrowly focused (given that I don't do spicy all that well), but I adore the meatball sub, and lately I've been hooked on the grilled cheeze as well. When the brussels sprouts are done well, they are out of this world.
There's a new high roof over the patio out back (I am deeply fond of the patio, although I do miss the sky a little), and heaters have come along with it. Even in the winter, now, except on truly cold nights, it can be a wonderful place to go and have a conversation while you eat and/or drink, without getting overwhelmed by loud music and the indoor crowds.
Bartenders here are, nearly without exception, proactively awesome (if I'm being entirely frank, there is one who I rarely see, but pointedly avoid). They know their stuff, they are stars of service, and I have had several inventive (non-Floor Punch) non-alcoholic drinks that blew me away (along with all the alcohol I've consumed here). Some of the gimlets I've had here have been practically magical experiences.
Note also that their 4-7 happy hour can be a fascinating shift in demographics, along with the normal happy hour fare.
