Clean, well decorated bar and restaurant. Upscale atmosphere, moderate prices, so IMO a good value. Walls have 4 big screen TVs on each wall, so you can view 4 different sports events from either side of the room, if somehow something on the Jumbo TV...More

Went here expecting to eat basically a salad as beer and bar food not usually gluten free. But waitress said most of their menu is gluten free as they use rice flour to fry everything. Had fried pickles and burger and had no side effects!...More

Great food. Check out the summer salad which is divine and the best tater tots you have ever eaten! Better food than the average sports bar. Much better. Great beer selection. Great service. Lots of TVs.

This bar/restaurant had multiple TV’s in the room-prob 8-10- and when I asked to put a game on, they didn’t have MLB Network to put it on. Not a big deal. They had one person working 6 tables and one bartender so our service wasn’t...More

Great crispy bread with cheese and pineapple! I would never have ordered a grilled cheese sandwich out, but couldn't resist this combo which was amazing!! Menu varies daily and is unique and delicious!

Food is poor and service is terrible, don’t waste your money. The only thing I can say positive about this place that they had a decent selection of beer.

Family of five and we all enjoyed our food (burgers, salads, crab cake sandwich). Service was very slow due to being short handed. Despite that we would definitely return.

I had the three cheese, bacon, pineapple and jalapeño grilled cheese. DELICIOUSNESS!!! I also had the house salad with bleu cheese dressing. My husband had the scallops. The beers we're refreshing (and nice selection), the staff was very nice, and we would stop by again...More

Ate here with a group of friends and was impressed with the quality of the food, the beer selection, and the creative menu. I ate a Lamb-burger which was tasty, but the best part was the homemade tater tots. Never had any like this before...More

Wow. We have passed this joint several times. First time eating there last night. The food was unique and awesome. The special was a spicy tuna taco which was amazing. The PB&J wings were outstanding, despite what I initially thought. Bar tender was super cool,...More
