Loud, dark and crowded, but pretty good service and my fish ‘n chips were real good. Football games were on and everyone seem to be enjoying their Sunday afternoon.

Very nice place. Staff is friendly. Noise level was a little high during our visit. The burgers are great. Worth the visit. We both tried the pear and goat cheese burger. It was awesome. We'll visit again next time we are in town.
