We keep hoping the food will become ok, but I'm often disappointed. Always hit and miss. Music is often great but drinks are expensive. We pay to listen.... but would have a few more if beers weren't $8!

Ate here while traveling through Minden. I had a very good house hamburger w/fries and a couple of regional brewed beers. We ate on the patio and service was good. Definitely a keeper. I'd come again, if I was traveling the area.

Not outstanding, but ok pub food and beer on their new outdoor terrace. Live music to boot! Nice place to relax on a hot summer day.
