Great Burgers. Hand-formed burgers cooked perfectly. Had the breaded mushrooms as well. A little bit on the watery side, but well seasoned and tasty.

Pub food served at this small sized restaurant/bar. The bar is almost as large as the room that it is in. Burgers are the big menu item. Prices are very reasonable.

Great food especially burgers, potato salad and Cole slaw. Full bar and great beer selection. Service was great especially for a party of 50. Only drawback was smallish room they packed us in, that said no complaints on food and I would come back.

A recently new menu item is portabella mushroom sandwich which is absolutely outstanding. The house potato salad is a perfect accompaniment. Would highly recommend it.

Large selections of tasty burgers. Fast & friendly service. Atmosphere is definitely local pub with TV screens, bar tables. One of this tucked almost out-of-sight (thanks to road construction) places worth the visit.
