We came to Chris’s on a recommendation and we were not disappointed. We were sat quickly and the waitress helped with some suggestions. Food was excellent and so was the service. We will be back next time we are in town. I would recommend.

Extremely clean and very friendly. Great bar selection, unique specials too! Easy parking. Hard to drive by without stopping in! You just can't get a bad meal there!
