My burger was good. My husband liked his. I dislike the fries as they are small and too salty. I ordered coleslaw with my burger and didn't think it had enough sauce or flavor. Husband likes the beer selection. The waitress didn't seem too friendly....More

Love their fresh potato fries! Husband and I both had burgers, mine was a little dry and his was great. Big variety of beer types! Very busy place. Great service!

Other than being too loud where you have trouble having a conversation, this is the perfect spot to have a quick lunch time meal. Great prices and staff.

The last time I was there they refused to serve me as I was "clearly intoxicated" yet the glass of water they served me was decidedly gluten free. Tip, when in doubt get the water.
