Recommended by our hotel. Nearly walked out as nobody cared to seat us or give us menus for 5 minutes. We felt ignored. But eventually we were served well and the food was good and tasty. I had fajitas which was very plentiful.

We enjoyed coming here for a casual pub like meal. I had a half rack of ribs which could have passed for a full rack. My husband had a fish wrap which he also liked.

Stopped in just for a couple of beers before returning to hotel. Appetizers seemed a bit expensive, or we would have added one. There is an outdoor seating area, but near highway. Interior, beer selection nothing special. 2 beers with tip, $12.

These are awesome. One of the best deals on their menu. The service is very good and the waitresses have always been efficient yet friendly. We go there about once a month. Also, recommend trying the daily specials...they are worth trying.
