Had a nice family dinner. Restaurant was busy, there was live entertainment as well. The food and service were both good. There were eight of us, and all of the meals came out as ordered. The burgers are especially good!

Stopped by on a rainy Saturday afternoon for a beer and quick bite to eat. The food was outstanding and VERY reasonably priced. We weren't there long as we were heading to a evening wedding reception, but we will certainly be returning when in New...More
