We recently ate here with for a youth team dinner in a group of 30 people. The manager nicely opened up the third level so we could have a private room. They also had an extra server dedicated for our group. The food is typical bar food, not gourmet but tastes good with a beer while watching a football game.... More

We had a larger party of 8 to seat on a Saturday night, with a Badger game going on, so we had a wait of 10 minutes. Ashton was our server and she did a great job. Didn't have to wait very long either for our food to arrive, so all went well. Everyone was happy with what they had... More

This place is a gem. Our waitress was delightful, and we had a great service experience. The kids loved that their entrees arrived on Monk's frisbees. Everything was super tasty, the burgers were juicy and loaded with toppings.

We had burgers and cubano sandwich. Really good. My only issue is the kids hot dog could be more catered for kids. My son (11 years old) said it was too thick and yes it sure was. Other than that the food is fresh and tasteful. The price point is good as well
