First time going here and the Happy Hour was crowded. Luckily we came for dinner because seating in the bar was sparse. It took a little longer than I preferred to see our waiter, but when he came, he was attentive and good. My friend ordered the daily special, a blackened trout, which she thought was a bit bland. I... More

Ok let's get the bad out of the way - the parking spaces are lined out way too narrow! I bet they are 2" wider than most cars. I had to climb into my car via passenger seat! Good stuff - food, beers and service. Ahi tuna salad for me wife, PPM pizza for me (pepperoni, pepperoni and mushrooms). I... More

Enjoyed a birthday meal with the family. Our waiter, Jeff, was super efficient. The food was good--crab cakes (yum), chicken ziti pasta dish (also tasted great). We enjoyed 3 different desserts - créme brulee, peach cobbler, and chocolate cake. Peach cobbler and chocolate cake were large enough to share, and all very tasty.

Excellent food and prices. Our party had a great duck breast, grilled salmon and chicken Cobb salad between us. Service on the other hand, left something to be desired, but no more than typical when keeping it weird. Hostess asked us if we wanted Happy Hour or seating, with no explanation of what either entailed. We kind of were hoping... More

We have dined here maybe a half dozen times, and have never left disappointed. The service is always excellent, and the food is tasty with a varied selection--everything from salads, to burgers, to pizza & pasta & more. They also brew their own beer. There is a small bar and a large parking lot. The décor is pleasing (brick/fireplaces/etc) to... More

We came in for a late breakfast on a Saturday. We were seated promptly and immediately ordered Bloody Mary's. They are simple but delicious my only recommendation being that they have some hot sauce available for both the drinks as well as the food. The only thing they had was tabasco. Our server was friendly and attentive and we were... More

I attended a bridal shower and was impressed by the private room with big stone fireplace and wall of windows, attentive service, and excellent food.

Group of 7, sit on round table at the corner. The waiter can't reach the people on the back, but was very nice and gentle though. We had for appetizer onion rings (delicious), a sampler of sea food (also delicious) and a plate with some corn bread dipping in some soup, taste good, but it look very messy. I had... More

The location is nice there was a smell of spoiled beer on the patio as we arrived. The appettizure we got was fried calamari it arrived very quick which was not a good thing. The calamari was under cooked and we had to send them back. The next set was mostly cooked but we still got a few pieces that... More

Had dinner there, last day of my trip. Fresh, generous salad, ribeye cooked to my preference (medium rare), and their featured beer (a full bodied pilsner). Good atmosphere by the tables, the front was too noisy for my taste. Strongly recommend.
