Typical neighborhood watering hole. Never ate there, just a couple of drinks at the bar from time to time. Lots of regulars, decent, clean place with big screen TVs at the bar for sports/news. Need to try the chow.

I love this place. It is comfortable and unpretentious. The crab soup is to die for and the burgers fat, juicy, and delicious. It can be a pain to get in and out of the parking lot with spaces at a minimum. The band is...More
