The restaurant is dark with no patio seating. The food is basic but good. I love the gazpacho which has shrimp in it. Nice salads. Friday night is prime rib and catfish special. Weekends has good music usually but no room to dance. There are always people around the bar so it's probably a fun place to be. I've only... More

We really liked this place. I had a great Cobb Salad and my wife had the Idaho Nachos. We saw a number of dishes go by that looked great like a French Dip and Fajitas. Plentiful portions. I did think the craft brew on tap was a bit high at 7.50.

We went there before we went out to the canyon and we went back after dinner. They had a live band and it was nice and relaxing.

Came here for lunch on a Tuesday with two of us and sat right down. Menu is extensive, mainly bar type food with a few specialities. Another in my party was vegan and they have a veggie burger they can do vegan and she indicated it was good. Service was a little slow throughout the meal. Beer batter fries and... More

Stopped in for some take out dinner and decided to treat myself to a slice of the vanilla sea salt caramel cake. YUMMMM! Very laid back local establishment. Seems like they have a good "regular" crowd at the bar. Bartender was super helpful and nice. And the neon sign is fabulous!

Sally, Thank you for stopping in! You have definitely found one of our "regulars" favorites in the slated caramel cake! Thanks for letting me know that our bartender took good care of you. Hope you come back when you have time to stay longer. More

Went on a Sunday night after golf. It was very quiet in the place, one large family at a table and one couple eating. A couple was playing pool and a 3some was watching Sunday Night Football. Seat yourself (it is a bar ) prompt service - at least tonight it was-. Large menu of bar food, and pizza, along... More

A bar is the focal point of the restaurant and it seemed a popular stop. We have delicious lobster bisque and a friend chicken dinner. Our waitress had her hands full and never let it get to her. Enjoyed our food and atmosphere.

We went to dinner here and we were pleasantly surprised by the live music and great atmosphere. The food was pretty good, we had burgers, nothing fancy. Although we waited a while, it was very busy and we enjoyed our time there. Definitely recommend stopping by.

We stopped in for a late lunch and there were only a couple tables. We both ordered a grinder and a soda. It took a long time to get there and when it did, it was not very warm. It was about six inches long and came with fries. My hubby ordered a torpedo and his seemed much bigger(his had... More

sailorwife23320, My apologies for such a poor experience. We are really well know for both our food and our service. I am very disappointed that we dropped the ball from the front to the back of the house. This is definitely not up to my standards and will be addressed with the staff. I do hope that you will stop... More
