We were in town visiting a friend, and this was a great place to hang out and relax on the patio. The monkey fries were delicious and we enjoyed a huckleberry beer.

Ate lunch here March 26, after being out on the mountains all day it was great to be able to sit down and have a great burger and fresh cut fries. Great décor and great food, I'll be back.

Me and my husband were staying around the corner from Lefty's and would come here to grab a quick apres drink and snack. Very casual, not fancy, but a lot of fun.

Hello. Sorry, just getting this message. Though we prefer not to have dogs on the deck, we do allow them on leashes close to the owners. Thanks and hope you made it by!
