Comfort food in a good atmosphere

We were just passing through on our way home and had a quick lunch here. Pizza was cheesy thin crust which my daughter liked. The chili was just right and had a nice taste.

We always have two families of 4 with younger kids and they find a way to fit us in without an issue. The staff is always great as well as the food.

I love buffalo wings. First time I got their traditional buffalo wings because I was warned off their XXX. They were good. I went back again to try their XXX wings. They were hotter and had good flavor. I would get them again.

A friend and I came back from Sugarloaf about a week ago and decided to stop by for some pizza. For the quality and size the prices aren't that great. And our server wasn't around much, which is surprising seeing as the dining area wasn't that packed or that large. When we ordered the pizza we only wanted half with... More

Went for dinner last night. Ski season is over so not jammed with people, but still surprised at how many were there. Service was good, but main complain was the food. We had claim chowder with bacon in it. $7.00. Not again. The best art was the soup was HIT, but really couldn't taste the clams, nor really the bacon.... More

After reading all the so-so reviews we went here as skeptics wanting to check it out. We were pleasantly surprised. Perhaps it was the day - apres ski, 60 degree afternoon, sat on the deck by the fire, live music, and shared a taster flight and flat bread. The beers all seemed very similar in taste and not the most... More

The dining room has always been uncomfortable and awkward. This hasn't changed so make sure you sit in the bar (without kids for the benefit of others - personal preference). We've been 3 times this winter as I am not a fan of Roosters. Highlights: Greek salad was amazing each time... Lobster roll great. Saturday night music - great collection... More

We decided to try this Brew house again after the first time was very disappointing. The new sign stated now serving our own beer so we ordered four out of there choices. When the beer was served two of the four were flat. We told our server to which he stated that they were having trouble with those taps. He... More
