Lunch or dinner

A great place for a casual meal. The burgers are good and everything is reasonably priced. They could use an updating because the furniture is a bit dated.

I've been here about 5 times in the last couple months. I always sit at the bar. Have had three meals, and quite a few beverages. Food was good, and hot. Fast service. Staff is friendly, and helpful, one of the bartenders is a very funny guy.

Always happy with the food and drinks. Good menu variety - the haddock dishes are always good. The desserts are yummy - worth saving room for if you can. I like the drink specials and the sangria flight is always a good choice.

A burger ordered medium was raw and the server never came back to the table until plates were to be cleared and declared, oh my, that doesn't look medium, and left with... More
