We met friends for dinner and live music at the corner pocket and were expecting "bar food". We had a fresh catch fish sandwich and fish tacos. Delicious. Our friends had primerib. Everything was delicious. Service was great. Our waitress was supported by two other servers making for a great dining experience. The band was great. The solo opening act... More

Do not be put off by the pool table in the bar. Populated by many locals for a reason! Good food, inexpensive, good service...nothing fancy though...just burgers, fish & chips, etc. But yummy!

Excellent service, excellent food. Not what you would expect of a local spot with a pool table in the middle of the room. The fish and chips are outstanding and the beer is good to.

This is such a fun local Bar and Grill! You know it's a great find when all the locals go to their neighborhood bar. Nothing fancy, Sports TV's on, pool tables in use, just plain and simple. But great service here, our waitress Jade was awesome, always had a smile! My husband is truly a hamburger aficionado and he loved... More

We both had the Ono sliders - they were wonderful. The onion rings were also good. Service was friendly. There were quite a few locals showing up with their cues to play pool.

We stayed near this place and saw the sign for Taco Tuesday... The tacos were very good and they didn't skimp on ingredients. The price was reasonable and the staff very friendly. The day after we were there we were heading back home to Alaska and we realized our credit card was missing. After retracing our steps we realized we... More
