Fun Atmosphere

Kahootz is a small pub type atmosphere with one of the largest beer selections on tap that I have seen. My husband had the burger and said it was good, I had the best French Dip I have ever had....and I have had many. Service was very good and the staff is helpful. We thought the prices were great.

We were looking for a restaurant that we hadn't tried and I discovered Kahootz through the reviews in TripAdvisor. We arrived early, as the previous reviews had recommended, and were glad we did as it is a small restaurant and it fills very early. My wife ordered the beef dip sandwich and I ordered the special, which was corned beef... More

Never had a bad meal at Kahootz. Sirloin is top notch, asparagus are best around and wings are outstanding. If you're a wing fan, the Pterodactyl are quality although they used to be even better when they were BBQ versus just the basic hot sauce but still good. Just be sure to get there early as place fills up quick.... More

Not a drinker, so we go for the food - haven't been disappointed yet. I've had their filet mignon, which was done to perfection, and have also had their French Dip and their Chicken Salad. Very fresh food, and not what you'd expect from a bar - wayyy more high-end! Friendly staff. Go early for less wait time!

We have stopped in lots of time, whether for the large draft beer selection, prime rib on Friday or Saturday, or an incredible grinder for lunch. My wife likes the pasta dishes and the pork and steak specials are always worth trying. Unfortunately, the word is out, so expect a wait around meal times especially on the week-ends, but the...

Local gem, serving great steaks, seafood, and burgers. Got get there on time, place is packed by 5:30. Steak salad is very good, and prime rib is too! Big selection of beers on tap, and friendly fast service.

Fantastic steaks, housemade dressings and desserts, attentive service, plenty of beer taps to choose from. Wonderful to sit on the patio in warmer weather. Always busy! A hometown favorite.

Every time I've eaten there I've never been disappointed. Last time, I ordered a burger. It was huge, came with thick strips of applewood smoked bacon on a really fresh bun. This is a non-chain restaurant that that I wish more people would patronize...for selfish reasons :-). I want them to be around for a long time so that I... More

we go for St Patrick's day food - very good corned beef and cabbage. Their deserts are really decadent.
