We made a return visit here because our first experience was so good. This visit found a much busier time, but we were seated quickly and were well taken care of. The choice of beers here is great and the food is over the top....More

The food was very good. Big portions. Beer was great. Crowded and a little small. It was extremely loud so it was hard to have a good conversation . Would definitely go back. Food was much much better than normal bar food.

Best to call and ask. Some have special things going on and may charge to get in or maybe they will shorten hours.
