Great burgers and local beer. The food has been excellent every time I go. I prefer dining in the back bar area but the restaurant is great for families or old ladies that prefer the more traditional restaurant feel.

We arrived in town in the late evening, and soon found many venues were closed by 8 PM. We were delighted to find this location, which not only is open later, but also provided a nice dining experience. Our waitress was friendly, attentive, and gave...More
