We visited with family. Came during happy hour with $3 Margaritas and $2 draft 3-6 pm on Sat. We had the fish and chips which everyone loved plus the BLT and slaw. Food is reasonable and tasty.

This place has the best garlic fries ever! And the rest of their food is equally tasty. A definite step above bar food in a location off the beaten path.
