A beloved local gathering place, I wanted my rating to be higher, but not this time. It was my first visit, and as always, I don't take one visit as my only one. I will visit again in the hopes I simply hit an off day. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Our waitress was very personable and pleasant. While... More

We came here for a birthday and really enjoyed it. Everyone's friendly, and the restaurant was decorated for Halloween. The food's good, and ours was spicy, which was nice. They also had live music.

I have eaten here a few times and now with expanded parking it is a great spot. The updated beer menu (crafty changes daily) is one of the best in the area. The food is good and the burgers are solid !! The music scene after 9:00 pm is top notch -Look for an expanded patio soon. The owner, Keith... More
