This was our first lunch here. We had found the evening too noisy for conversation however no loud music at noon. Very attentive service. The jalapeño bacon burger was done to perfection and love the crispy fries. We also had 1/2 club sandwich which the...More

There are many options as sandwiches as well as entrees for dinner. The toasted club was pretty good but nothing special against others in area. The beer and bar menu was very extensive which seemed to be main focus of this location.

Visited with a group. Everything handled beautifully. My Italian sausage and jalapenos was excellent with full flavor.

Went there after golf. One burger was a hockey puck, mine was very well prepared, juicy and tasty. Hand cut fries were a little overcooked, but the thicker ones were very good. Our waitress was attentive and helpful.

Lori, Thanks for stopping in and giving us another try! While we try and to meet and exceed our customer's expectations, we realize that's not possible 100% of the time. We definitely have changed since our inception, and I'm not sure how long you've been...More
