Frequented by local frequents. Worth the trip. Outside terrace cash only. Check it out when in Pinckney/Hamburg area. Reasonable and good value.

A steadfast community favorite, regulars enjoy seats at the bar or on the upper deck in the summer. Check their web page for specials. But don’t let the t-shirts pinned to the wall or the neon beer signs fool you, the food is really good....More

I have been to this restaurant twice in the past week and both times I've been disappointed in my food. Last Friday I ordered their nachos as it noted "spicey cheese" and I thought perhaps they got rid of the velveeta. Nope it was velveeta...More

I'm sorry I have no idea about seniors night. I do know they have food specials each night though. Sorry, you will need to call them or look them up on line as suggested.
Are you serving crab cakes today? Our family is coming at 5 pm today & we all like crab cakes. I think the reservation may be in the name of Offenbacher.
