Stopped in for a quick supper and were not disappointed. We ordered the Tuna Melt (HUGE), Kalamazoo burger and Gouda burger all well prepared, hot and juicy. The fries came out hot & crispy and the side salad was large land very good. Happy customers

The new building is great. The food and service was great as always. I had the Bells Cod and my wife had the Southwest Chicken Salad both were great. The Bombshell dessert may be the best dessert I have ever had, wow.

Enjoyed a late dinner here with friends. The banger shrimp appetizer and banger shrimp tacos were excellent. The chicken ranch sandwich was good but small. Good beer selection. Ample table and bench seating with 2 floors. Side lot parking. Good service. I would return.

It's a bar. The menu was vast and wide with a lot of selection. We ordered sandwiches and pad thai. The sandwiches were average the pad Thai was passable but just barely. We should have stuck to the burgers. He $2.00 Hamm's was a bonus.

Burgers were large and cooked properly. Seems meat came from low quality, frozen, preformed patties. Service was good during lunch visit.
