It's been many years since I've visited here since I've relocated out of state. New building due to previous fire. Seems to have same menu for the most part. Tried several craft beers, which were very good. Food was good. Would visit again.

must have a new menu or cook. Burgers now are like hockey puck on a bun. Please bring back the famous Cold Spot burgers! Still the best wings and a great beer selection but this leaves a bad taste, pun intended.
