I love coming here! The food and service is great. I usually get the buffalo wings and salad. They never disappoint! Their blue cheese is made in house and is amazing! I will always recommend this place.

This is a fun place for good food and good beer. The craft beer selection is interesting, with plenty of choices of local and regional breweries. Our servers was beer-knowledgeable, which is a plus.
