The selection is not huge but always something to float your boat. Slightly different, inexpensive and interesting foods are available. Always a great group. Been numerous times really wish I lived closer!

They have a good collection of Micro-Brews on tap. The prices are reasonable. One pool table and about 5 or 6 dart boards.

I would have to say probably not. We went with another couple (ages 50-60) and noted no families in attendance. Mostly young couples and those playing pool or darts. Also not a big menu selection. Appetisers mostly!
