All the food is great! They have a great fish fry along with a great chef salad. The portions are huge. I could have eaten my salad for 3 days. Good atmosphere.

Very good bar food. Burgers are the best. It can be quite noisy. A fairly nice outdoor area. Lots of tv's if you like sports.

A neighborhood bar/restaurant. Very friendly and welcoming. Atmosphere is lacking, very old and worn out. But the food was excellent . Both the roast beef and the steak were oh so tender and full of flavor.

We went looking for a place that was just good food and an adult beverage. We found this in downtown Horseheads. It is not fancy and does not look like much, but the food was just right and the atmosphere was just right for a couple not looking to be fancy. I ordered a sirloin steak sandwich with cheddar cheese... More

We asked for a recommendation for a casual place for dinner and drinks and were directed to beefs. When we walked in we were a little unsure but the food and service was great!! A hole in the wall place that you wouldn't look at twice but a great place to stop. The cook and bartender were so friendly and... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. This bar hasn't been redecorated since I don't know when. It could use it. That said it gets a good crowd on the weekends and always has great wings.

Photo on Tripadvisor is not of the restaurant. Not impressive looking place from the outside but offers a creative bar menu with some interesting sandwich and burger choices. We had a steak sandwich and a fried pork tenderloin sandwich that were a nice change from the usual bar fare and reasonably priced under $10. Staff was pleasant and seemed like... More
