If you order before 6 pm on a weekday, they have really good happy hour specials, including one of their burgers. Great value, good flavor.

Ultimate comfort food here and a fine tap list as well. Lunch, happy hour or dinner you won't be disappointed. They stick with what works and they keep people coming back.

We kept the old handcrafted favorites: the signature burgers, sandwiches, hand cut fries. And added a surprise or two: Elk burger, house made bacon? Hello. And just wait until you see the 1880's bar and enjoy our happy hour specials Monday - Friday from 3-6 and 2-5 on weekends. Bring the family, the friends, the neighbors. Private room available with seating for 50 or cocktail parties for up to 75. Full service patio and deck.
