There are so many promising choices on this menu that, after a shared appetizer of blue cheese fresh cut potato chips, we stuck with smaller salads -- hoping to save room for the dessert list. To no avail...the portions here were HUGE! We'll be back for dessert, because everything was very tasty!

We love this place and eat here a couple of times a month. Great salads, burgers, sandwiches, fish and steaks, with some pasta and southern food favorites too. Hearty portions for the hearty eater and lighter selections if that's desired. Nice bar area and choice of outside or inside dining. A variety of music outside in the evening. Decorated with...

Went for lunch and back for dinner! Place was all decked out for St Paddy's with a warm but not too intrusive staff.

Always good food. Eating outside on a Sunday afternoon is always a great idea during the Spring. Most Servers have worked there for a long time so you typically get excellent service. Steaks are great!

Stopped here after canoeing. We had ribs, burger, salmon and sirloin steak. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. Great menu. Live music outside seating is very nice. The staff was very friendly and accommodating

Wasn't sure what to expect in a small town downtown restaurant, but was pleasantly surprised. The food was very good... I ate every crumb. Service was friendly, but servers seemed to have multiple tables in multiple locations, so it was difficult to check out in a timely manner. The outdoorsy decor was new and purchased looking, but enjoyable. If I'm... More

I have been hearing great, good & not so good things about this restaurant so I wanted to see for myself. I was not disappointed (well maybe a little in the prices) but other than that we were extremely happy!! Sit outside on the patio, enjoy the weather, atmosphere & the live music!! Our waitress Lisa A was wonderful &... More
