Great burger, VERY PLEASED!!

Really good food!! I had a cheeseburger with sweet potato fries, that were hand-cut, NOT out of a bag! The cheese curds were AWESOME and I am typically not a fan of cheese curds! Overall the food was awesome! GOOD CHOICE!

Our group had fish and burgers. Large tasty sandwiches. We thought seasoned fries could have had a little more seasoning on them. Service very good. Good for lunch while shopping. Large menu.

Hamburgers were awesome, but then so was the cod and shrimp! And you really should go when you're hungry because the serving size is generous!
