Dropped in for a late lunch on a Saturday. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Food is ok, but that was ok for this stop.

Quintessential beer joint and I mean that in the finest tradition. Best hamburger in the land and the chili-cheese dog isn't far behind. Also an old full sized theater popcorn machine. The kind of popcorn you remember. You will like this place!

While this place is a little dated both outside and inside, it has great pub food. I like a place with a bit of character. This tavern has the feel of a 1960 bar and I believe that was wen the fixtures date from. Ignore this, or love it. The place is clean and the people are friendly. There is... More

A friend suggested the Barnbuster burger, so I gave it a try. It was very good: almost half a pound of ground beef cooked exactly how you want it. To be honest, the fries weren't spectacular: just warmed-over prefabricated pototo things passed off as fries. There was one server for the whole restaurant and she was running around like a...

The prices were Beyond reasonable if... More

It was great food, lovely atmosphere, and a good time was had by all. This was a birthday celebration, and it was a good choice for such.

Their Barn Buster is one of the best burgers I have had. The steak fries with a side of Rotel cheese dip is my favorite side. My husband loves the fried mushrooms and the steak sandwich. If you are looking for a good burger with or without a beer this is your place. I have not had anything bad here,... More
