Perhaps we caught the restaurant on a bad day, but the food was just average. The hamburger was somewhat overcooked and tough, but the fries were good. We went there with someone who had eaten there before, and he agreed that the quality was not...More

So much rain you could have paddled to this burger joint. Great meat in the burger cooked to perfection in a cornbread bun. Friendly staff free wi-fi and a large collection of beers from the islands

It was later in afternoon when we stopped in for their great burgers that they put the Brewer Baseball game on. Not sure about football as we were there in March, but they will accommodate you. Great staff.
