Great place for lunch with Friends. Service is fast and friendly. They have a great Angus burger, along with an extensive menu. Flavorful and definitely fills you up. Relaxed atmosphere, old Salinas Charm and a good variety of tap beer.

Stopped here by chance. They have a good beer selection (see my photo) and standard pub fare for food. Don't expect much on the wine front. The did however have a single choice for red, a single choice for white! Yes one choice as to...More
