Busy on a Thursday night football evening gave the place a nice bustle. Great selection of beers, and a very good menu with a nice variety of foods. Good service - the staff did a great job handling the crowd. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the fresh food.

Ate here twice during our stay and both times were very good. I would recommend you get a booth because it can be a little loud. The specials were worth noting and both nights we went that way. It can get crowded so go a little early if you can.

Good food and atmosphere. Service was really off like waiting for a fork for 5 minutes while food gets cold. The peanut butter pie dessert was tiny.

Great service here. Drinks ordered immediately followed by their fabulous bacon wrapped BBQ scampi shrimp. 4 jumbo shrimp perfectly grilled. Ordered a fish sandwich which seemed to be. Beer battered, crispy with pepper cheese and spicy aioli sauce. Cute presentation of the French fries in a little fry basket. Ordered BBQ sauce on the side but didn't like it very... More

Great service, plenty of choice and good beef. A tad noisy due to the "happy hour " group. Close to Embassy Suites and King Street. Outdoor seating a plus
