On a nice sunny day with a mild breeze, we stopped for lunch between errands and opted to sit outside. It appeared that only the bartender was waitressing. First issue, she took the order of people who arrived a good 5 minutes after us first,...More

This is a basic local stomping ground if you are looking for an inexpensive "night out". It's ideal for a last stop on a bar crawl, bachelorette party, or 21st birthday. There is no coverage charge, the drink selection is decent and not overly priced....More

Came to Northampton on business and hit this place up our first night for dinner. Sat on the deck outside, weather was beautiful. Service was fast and friendly, and had absolutely no complaints about the food. Would definitely recommend!

Second time in 3 weeks we attempted to have lunch and watch football on a Sunday. The patriots are the local team. The place is packed. And they have NO staff. First time we stuck it out. 2nd time we gave up. Get a clue!

Service was awful, and when the food arrived, NOT worth the wait. Been to Union Station a while back, and the service and food was just as bad. Their kitchen sucks. Don`t know why I came back. Will NEVER again.
