We called the restaurant and asked if we could reserve a table for ten. This place is always filled. They said yes. It is located around 4 major motels and close to the Convention center. It has a large outdoor patio area with a horseshoe pit! When we arrived it was full. The waitress took our orders quickly and after... More

My husband and I stopped for a good steak dinner. We were NOT disappointed! The food was great. My husband enjoyed their own brewed beer and I a local wine. We ate outside on the enclosed patio area and watched others play a game of horseshoes. We will definitely stop again if in the area!

Great beers, friendly staff, and good food. Across the parking lot from 3 hotels making enjoying a few beers a wonderful option if staying at the hotels. No driving required. Highly recommend a visit.

Crowded restaurant; excellent food! We enjoyed an IPA that was on tap. For lunch we enjoyed fish and chips, chicken cheesesteak, and an Italian club - all very tasty. It's next to Hotel 8 - in an area where you would not expect to find such great food. Our granddaughter found it on Trip Advisor and insisted we keep searching... More

Worth the find! We stopped for lunch on our way to Grants Pass from California. It was a nice surprise how good it was. I had the fish and chips. The fries were excellent, but the fish was just a little greasy. If i were to ever go back in that direction again I would most definitely get the italian... More

I don't drink, husband does. I was feeling like I was at a college bar. Lot's of noise and slow waiting for food. I wanted to go out to the garden for some quiet, but it did not appear open. A bar with food is still a bar.
