Great Cigar Friendly patio paired with a awesome Martini! Seafood Mac & Cheese hit the spot. Friendly staff and warm atmosphere. Will be going back when I’m in town!

Food was ok. Booth seating was very uncomfortable. Multiple Flatscreens promoting the menu extras provided a uniquely unpleasant atmosphere.

When I entered before noon, this was not busy but leaving a half hour later, you can see how popular this spot is with the locals. A choice of outdoor or indoor dining, booths, tables and the bar allows everyone to be seated as they...More

We'd heard that this place had some of the best burgers in town, so 2 in our party got their signature burger. It was a decent burger, but we were expecting it to stand out more. Perhaps a unique sauce was called for. Nice selection...More
