Pub style greasy spoon. Wait staff is friendly. Food has too much grease for my liking. Decor is interesting. Not one of my favorite spots in town.

I am from Maryland on a cross country trip and after 45 days this is the worst food I have EVER EVER had. Are you kidding me. This is supposedly a burger place specializing in elk an buffalo but nothing is FRESH so everything is VERY VERY well done like a rock. Avoid this place at all costs.

Bar food was super fun, I wouldn't say it is generic bar food but bar food nonetheless. I wouldn't ever come here for a meal but it is always a fun place to catch a drink with some friends. The applewood smoked wings are great.

The atmosphere and service here is vanilla for sure. The food isn't consistently good but it's not consistently bad either. It may be the best sports bar in town in terms of food and service. Try the smoked wings or quesadilla. I would recommend this place to a friend before the Firehouse or Buffalo Wild Wings.

This is a decent place for a meal. They have a lot of beers on tap and the food is a little above standard bar food. Don't get me wrong, I've never had a bad meal here. It can get a little loud. In the summer they have a small patio that is nice.

I travel a lot, but this is the only place I have found applewood smoked wings. They are not cheap, but some of the best wings I have every had.

Went in for a beer and a sandwich on April 19th. Heard from some friends that I work with that it was not bad. I get that it was a Friday night but still no one came to my table. I had to go up to the bar and ask someone for a menu. I ordered a simple sandwich and... More

My husband and I were taking our teenage kids on one last trip before the start up of school. We stopped here for the third time because we loved the food and the staff! The kids love the burgers, salads for me and you can't go wrong with their steaks. We were served quickly and the wait staff was attentive... More
