Food is always good at Ecco Lounge. It is an old bar. They have a good selection of beers on tap and the onion rings are the best!

Stopped for dinner and a beer. Great pub food, the breaded tenderloin is killer. This place has been around since 1945

Good place for burgers. Have been disappointed by other selections. Most popular items seem to be breaded and fried.

I love this place, really good food, good service. This place does have a somewhat long wait time at lunch, I get an hour but almost always go over. The atmosphere is great. Really enjoy it here.

I can honestly say, I have never given this low of a rating at any place I have been, but this one deserves it. My wife and I went there a few weeks ago and the experience was pretty amazing. We waited a long time...More

Arrived just before 5 pm, and restaurant was 1/3 full. A sign said "please wait to be seated", so we waited, and waited... Finally, a kid that looked to be 15 or 16 got us a table. He got our drinks and then once again,...More

A little hard to find as most of the parking is at the rear. If the Ecco had a fancy front door, everyone would be trying this place and making it too busy for the rest of us. I even hate to rate this place...More
