Great atmosphere, good food, and great beer. The barbecue pork wrap was one to go back for. As luck would have it our hotel was just around the corner so we sampled a few of the beers.

We love the cheese curds! Our food comes quickly, and have never had poor service. We go here about 4x per month, as it is our go to spot. New menu items are a plus!!

Nice decor. Good food but expensive-a $4.50 upcharge for a serving of mac and cheese as a side seems high as does $13 for 3 tacos. Lots of choices for beer. Good service.

Great Decor and food presentation. Similar menu to Famous Dave's chain, but better. Service staff was friendly, but needs some more training. Can't stand when an employee says "I have no idea." The right answer is "I will find out."(which he did) He repeatedly went...More
