I ate here after a short business trip. The sandwiches are huge and reasonably priced. Everything is al a carte. The sweet potato fries are to die for. It's always busy , but the service people get the job done. Highly recommend!

As a premier Pub & Grill we serve the best in gourmet burgers, fries,sandwiches, nachos, wraps, craft beers, beer, wine, martinis & cocktails, along with weekday lunch specials and nightly dinner specials. We are located in the old bus station so our exterior is very unique, however inside you will find state of the art Tv's, sound system and Vegas style comfortable seating.
