We arrived at 5 on a Friday. Restaurant was beginning to get a little crowded but we were seated immediately. We were quickly brought drinks and offered appetizers. Once we decided on our meal the waitress was patient and helped explained menu and even offered suggestions. Our meals ranged from steak to burgers and all were cooked to order, hot... More

If you like good, cold beer, giant TV screens tuned to sporting events, a busy crowd, quick service, and bar food - this is your neighborhood place.

Went here with my daughter at her request, she got a burger which was pretty tasty. I got a chicken melt, which I would not recommend. The menu description sounded delicious, but the sandwich was partially grilled with some of the bread soggy and some too dry. The chicken tasted fine but one half of the sandwich had about a...

Went here for lunch while visiting and the food was great, got an excellent pizza and some good beers. I will say that the service was slow, even though hardly anyone else was in the place; although it. might have been because we were there earlier than the locals showed up. Still highly recommend them for food and beer.

Come here and watch a game with the gang and grab some burgers and beers, or bring the family for a casual dinner (and sneak a peek at the game on one of their many big TVs). Weather permitting, there are cornhole boards outside. No surprises in the menu. Affordable and local.

My daughter raved about the food and service, but to be honest, to me it was average. I think in an effort to get our table's food delivered together, my burger and fries sat in the window a bit as the fries were cold and soggy and the burger was lukewarm. Taste-wise, it was acceptable. It was a Saturday night... More
