Walked in and the band was awesome. Bar tenders stayed busy and smiled. Food was almost perfect. Atmosphere was friendly and every one having a good time.

Motorcycle themed restaurant, but not a biker bar. They do have bike nights but it is well done and not filled with riff raff. Lunch time is a rush there and the chances of getting in and out in under 45 minutes is going to be tough.

Good bar food. Great burgers and sandwiches. Sweet & sour wrap is my favorite. Lots of TVs for sports events.

Great atmosphere, decent food. Not much for gluten free or healthy options, but great for bar food, pizza, and appetizers. Downstairs can be reserved for private parties. Frequent bands, very loud and energetic atmosphere

Was staying in town and saw a ad in the hotel room for a "biker? bar. It was very far from a biker bar. It is a Disney version of a biker bar. It's nice for what it is but it is not what it was advertised to be.

Nice atmosphere during the day to eat and maybe have a few drinks. Friday and Saturday nights are live music. One of the last remaining live music venues.

Had an awesome BLT and chips, and the Mozzarella Cheese sticks were a real crowd pleaser at our table! The service was great! Fast, friendly and our drinks were always kept full.
