Such a great experience tonight with Dillion!!! He took care of our party of 7 like a pro. Never had an empty glass, and the food was amazing. Steak bites for the win!

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.
