Had great meal and awesome service! Mary, our waitress, was the only one working and she didn't miss a beat! The food was hot and delicious. Really cool atmosphere too!!!!

I'd wanted to go here for a long time, and finally I convinced my family. Early on a Saturday night (5:30 p.m.) it wasn't that busy. Inside, it is a bar first, sportsbar second (some TVs, even big ones, but the space isn't designed around TVs), and restaurant third. Lots of tables and booths, but the crowd was really hanging...

The place is great local place to eat. The service and prices are very reasonable. They don't open until 10:00 am and have a full bar service

Imagine taking your burger below the sea..... Everything on this burger was soaked in oil... The bun, burger, and veggies. I bit into it and as usual with a JL, the cheese was a volcano of molten cheese death. :( boo

We saw this site in the food channel and had to experience it. The place is ok. looks like its run by a family. The food was good and not too expensive. The area... not as I imagined but safe..

I met a colleague here for lunch awhile back and it was my first time in the establishment. So...we weren't there for the decor - regular bar-type setting and adequate tables and chairs. Thought they did have a sign on the wall, it took the waitress to inform me that they appeared on Diner's Drive-Ins, and Dives. Low and behold,... More

We were told by a friend that they have very good juicy lucys there so we tried it. They were amazing. The wait staff and the owner are super nice people and our service was good. We will definitely go hack.

I am on a Facebook page that raves about this place, so my husband and I decided to try it. I had eaten there with my family as a child, and seemed to remember it was pretty good.

The atmosphere is more bar than restaurant and a little on the worn & seedy side. It was rather boisterous on a Sunday afternoon, which made conversation difficult at times. We had the fried chicken and both thought it was pretty good. Tab was right around $20 (no alcohol) and we left plenty comfortable. Our servers (they seemed to be... More

There is absolutely no way the previous reviews are by actual live people who have visited this place. It is TERRIBLE. My husband and I went here once before - I thought the "house specialty" walleye wrap was gross but his food was fine. We were looking for somewhere to go on Saturday with our son and decided to give... More
