My boyfriend and I came here to grab some lunch for the first time and enjoyed our experience. They have a bar as well as tables and booths to sit it. The booths have mini tvs on the wall which I thought was pretty cool. We ordered wings as an appetizer and I would recommended them to others--delicious. For lunch... More

We went here for a team meal during our hockey tournament. The staff are nice but they are not ready to serve 30 people. This time they didn't screw up the bills like last time but the food was very slow coming out and it took 30 mins just to get a drink. The food was ok this time. I... More

The building is architecturally interesting; the wait staff is friendly and accommodating. Good place for a quick adult beverage and a snack. Plenty of tv's to watch a game. Great porch with fire-pit tables for warmth.

First, just to clear the air. We were sat at a table. Sounds petty however refills on the dinner menu for soft drinks are not free. In this and surrounding areas the norm is free soft drinks at the table you are seated outside of the bar. This is a college town . This definitely takes advantage of the non... More
