I don't think there is a such thing as a hidden Gem in the city that's a massive tourist attraction, however you would be doing yourself a disservice not to visit here. Great food. We got the buffalo chicken rolls. Super good appetizer. Since I felt guilty with someone that was fried I got the chef salad. Massive. Enough of... More

I ended up getting the fancy schmany grilled cheese sandwich and it was fantastic. The other people in my party all enjoyed their... More

Service was friendly and great but the food was leaving a lot to be desired. The beer cheese "soup" was just melted velveeta and beer. It was thicker than paste and the beer was just overwhelming. Fries were great. Philly cheese steak sandwich meat was SO salty. I couldn't finish even half of it because of how salty it was.... More

I personally have not received any complaints of this type about the saltiness of our food. Particularly the Philly Steak bun. Our Beer Cheese Soup is not made with... More

Great Beer and ends there.... Nachos were disgusting they use liquid cheese instead of shredded cheese and the rest was bland... But good Beer

I hope you brought this issue to the attention of the Server so that we could get you the nachos with shredded cheese that you desired. Thank you for the feedback, we... More

We visited this location several times for a weekend of wedding festivities. Every dish we tried was amazing. Pizza, meatloaf, salmon, salad, cheescake...al yummy. The atmosphere was fun and scenic. The wedding reception was held in the lower level with a gorgeous view of the river. I highly recommend this location. Try the Oh My Quad!

We came in for lunch and ended up coming back in the evening for dinner. Staff are superb and very helpful. We sat at the bar for lunch and loved chatting... More

We came back here for a leisurely lunch and were not disappointed. I got the salad with berries and grilled chicken, homemade root beer. Yum! Others got the pizza and burgers. Big burgers, great French fries, and fresh toppings. Good service and any sport you can think of on the many screens. You can sit outdoors on the back patio,... More
