Great food - we love the burgers, BLT and tacos. Good selection of beer, wine and spirits. Seating typically available in bar area as it is bigger than dining area. Separate rooms available for large groups.

I like the atmosphere and the food. The staff is always friendly. You can kick it with a full menu in the bar or in the restaurant area where it isn't so loud.

Fast service. Great food! I had the fish tacos and chips. Highly recommend it! Looks like a "Sam's Bar" atmosphere with the dart board area. Fun place.
