This is a relatively small eatery with a bar that's always crammed with people enjoying a great selection of beers and terrific cocktails. They make a terrific bourbon old fashioned. But it's the food that really sparkles. Nothing gourmet but oh so good old fashioned...More

Good burger. A little pricing for beer and burger but very good. Bill for two beers each for two guys with one food order with tip was almost $55. A little steep for someone from Wisconsin.
