I wish that I could give this place a better review but I can't. Hubby got a tuna sandwich and the tuna had not been drained, all drippy. Sandwiches served with thick cut roasted? potatoes. No taste and not even lukewarm. The summer squash soup looked more like a pudding and had barely no... read more

Backdoor proped wide open. Three of the menu items we considered were unavailable, as well as one dessert. One person, apparently an employee, sleeping in front of the TV with 'Sponge Bob' on and the remote between his legs. Behind the counter in the kitchen area Owner types chugging wine oblivious to anything of significance. My date said the the... More

We went here for dinner when Satchel's was too busy and we didn't want to wait. It's not a place I ever would have stopped in to try, but we noticed one day when we passed it and thought we'd give it a shot. It's a weird, funky little place, and we really liked it! The menu isn't big, but... More

Been here a few times for breakfast after our group runs in the Duckpond and we love it. No the food isn't fabulous but it's good. I usually get eggs, bacon and toast. The coffee is always good and plentiful, the waitstaff is always friendly and they don't mind if we come in sweaty and a little smelly :-). You... More

I'm not going to lie, this place is only a year old and it has some quirks to it. But I like supporting local businesses and I'm not a needy customer so I actually like that it's not a perfect, cookie-cutter restaurant. Specific points of awesome: 1. Specials. Brew Spot is ALWAYS running some kind of special and it's usually... More

Skip this place. We went because of a coupon and wished we never did. We sat down in the classroom, totally uncomfortable but better than the high chairs in the front. We weren't given any utensils or napkins and had to ask for our drinks twice. We helped ourselves to napkins that were located in the front along with salt... More
