Stopped in for a few beer, loved the atmosphere and the service was very good. Didn't eat the food but what I saw looked amazing.

The wings (only had the gringo hot) and the burger were great. Great music and atmosphere. The prices are a bit high but I guess your paying for location

Great local sports bar with gamin in the back. Good drinks and friendly service. Filtered ice and water - very important if you are not drinking bottled beer.
