Food was tasty. Filet, salmon, and Guiness pot roast all very good. We waited over 30 minutes for our appetizers, but the server was very nice.

Visited on a nice warm afternoon so the outside dining and bar area were very comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Had an amazing bison burger and there was a nice selection of beer. Try the Ruben eggrolls-they are excellent.
