We had marked this imaginatively decorated eatery off of our Valpo dining; list for about two years but are glad that we gave it another try over the holidays. There now seems to be as much attention to detail paid to food preparation and service as to decor. The meatloaf is as good as homemade if not better and the... More

Impressive looking place inside and out. We visited for cocktails and dinner. Staff was not friendly. Bartender challenged our requests we made. We were going to dine but just never felt like we were all that welcome.......so we left and ate elsewhere. It really is nice to be acknowledged that a business is glad you are patronizing their establishment.

Great food. Hamburgers are awesome. Mac and cheese is to die for. Only down side is its very load and difficult to talk. The high ceilings make everything echo

We had eaten here once before and liked it, so we had lunch here today. There's so much to look at on the walls--all industry related. There's even a toy train on a track above our heads. My husband had the classic burger and thick fries. Very good. I had a Cobb salad. A large portion, so I will finish... More

My wife and I have driven past this place many times. We finally stopped in. To state that we were pleasantly surprised is to understate the case by an enormous margin. What a fine place! Ambiance - interesting, pro-America, clean from top to bottom . . . everywhere. Restrooms - clean bordering on obsesive! Tables, chairs, and floors - clean... More

This place was awesome. By far one of the new favorite Valpo restaurants. The drinks were great and so was the food. Everything was really reasonably priced too. Check it out.
