Fun Place to meet Friends!

Fast, friendly service! Tasty, quality food! Fun and goofy atmosphere! We met friends here for a relaxed dinner. Our waitress was helpful, funny and friendly. She recognized that we were there to visit and kept herself in the "background" as much as possible. Yet, did not lack in service! We'll be... read more

I've been there twice recently and each time it has been consistent. The service is very good and the food is about what you would expect for a local pub. Some items are very good and some are average. The down side is, if you sit bar side it can get quite loud. My last visit with friends there was... More

Chose the dining room area with plenty of TV's and only a few other diners. Then we waited and waited for service and our drinks. Ordered the special of the day,which was... More

The building has been around forever, so you still think of the places that came before this place, so everytime I come and get quality food and drink, I'm always surprised. They have menu prices that are equal to the quality of food. I hate paying more for something that it was worth, but this place is not that. Even... More

Great variety on the menu, both for beverages and food items. The mac and cheese options are endless. Ample seating area is good for groups. Wait staff weren't too keen on a big group coming without a reservation despite a mostly empty dining area, but seemed fine once we were all assemblied.

Stopped in on a Saturday when all restaurants on main street were mobbed. We weren't disappointed! Fast, friendly service in a fun sports bar type atmosphere. Had the appetizer sampler. Everything on it was very good. All members of our party had burgers. Those were very good as well. Fresh burger buns and good fries. Will go back again when... More

Not a bad place to go with decent food. They have a unique twist on macaroni and cheese, I've had a couple and they were okay. Not a bad place to go in a pinch.

The boneless chicken was great, along with the fried brownies, Mac cheese. The people were awesome and had great personality.
