Have never been before!! The menu is fun, the sandwich is so good and the salad had pickled onions on it! Want to bring my family here when we are back in town!

Food was great, service was fast. A little off the beat and path but I would definitely recommend. 😁😁

This is the type of place you can bring your toddler without feeling guilty, but also has a bar-and-grill atmosphere. The food is a step above bar food but below white tablecloth which fits 90% of my dining situations. The TVs add a nice touch,...More

I haven't had anything I did not love to eat here. The only complaint I would have is they have some really popular dishes and those run out. Call ahead to check if your heart is set on something!

Thanks for the review Bonnie! We keep things fresh so running out isn't necessarily a bad thing :)

The bartender, Tina was so friendly and fast! Had a hard time deciding on a sandwich because everything looked good. The Goonies were tasty and the Cosmo was perfect! Will be back.
