Nice place. I have hosted group events at both Willies and original Cryans when living in NJ. Was in town visiting during March Madness weekend. Met an old friend on Sunday evening. Was relatively quiet, yet staff kept coming over to our high top table like they wanted us to leave. It was only 9:30.

My wife and I had their signature burger. It was cooked to perfection (medium, as requested) and large and juicy and yummy. Service was very attentive despite the place being very busy on a Wednesday night. They even had malt vinegar in the condiments basket on the table. My only complaint is that the IPA beers are a bit pricey.... More

Met a colleague here for lunch. Service was good, realized we needed to talk, and we were not hurried. Menu was extensive, I had corned beef, and it was delicious. Would like to return here for drinks some day.

Stopped in here for a lunch on a typical Tuesday afternoon. I didn't realize it was Taco Tuesday. Basically you get 3 soft shell, beef, chicken, or pork tacos with lettuce, pico de gallo, sour cream, salsa, and guacamole, along with black beans and rice, for $9.99. Delicious. Will be returning - on a Tuesday of course.

Went for dinner on a weekday and the service was a little slow. Not crowed just slow. But the food was quite good. Desert was also great. This is a place to stop and eat when you get the chance.

My husband & I went there for dinner last Friday night. We were seated right away but nobody brought us water or anything else. The table was dirty. Other people were seated after us and the waiter took their drink orders but ignored us. We left and won't go back.

Just visited the bar. The service was prompt and polite. happy hour prices of beers is really low : $ 2s and 3s. Also had stuffed potato skins which were excellent. Dim lighting, stuffed chairs, mahogany-themed interior; makes this a good place for a pleasant evening.

Corned beef (plain, they got it right too), and a burger. Great sweet potato fries (extra cost) and mostly quiet off to one of the side rooms. Game going on, so some cheers. Salty bacon on the burger, good fries too. They have two floors, party or entertainment. Large outside seating (weather permitting). Huge bar, sat there at times after... More

Looking like a diner from the road, we pulled in because of the large amount of cars parked in their lot. Most be a great place, right? It is, and we were glad to hit upon it before going to a concert at the RVCC Performing Arts center. The inside has a lot of nooks and crannies for the dining... More
