Great place to grab lunch or dinner close to the airport and downtown. Food is good, beer is cold and the service is friendly.

Small place and always busy but very friendly. The best thing is their food, never had a bad meal there. Last time in it was crowded but they quickly found a place for us to sit down and order. Service was great as usual.
