Good mac and cheese. Good for the price. I had the reuben which I usually try at any new restaurant I go to. Got a glass to freeze so I can have ice cold beers at home. Great wait staff.

A funky restaurant /bar right on the Boardwalk at 12th St. Always go there for breakfast,but lunch and dinner is good too. inside the bar at night there is always entertainment. Upstairs is another of their pubs called Bad A.. Cafe !!! they use the same kitchen and the menu is pretty much the same ! Fun place!!

We almost always have lunch here when we are at the boardwalk, and we have never been disappointed. Food is interesting and delicious, service is friendly and efficient, and you're right on the boardwalk with all the sights, sounds, and smells that implies (most of them very good). What could be better? We haven't found another restaurant that comes close.

Service was good, went at lunch time. Was able to get in and out in a reasonably amount of time. I had an American burger which was good. I had ordered no mayo and tomato, which mine had come out with it on. The waitress took the plate away, brought me the correct burger I ordered, and charge us full... More

Service was nice and friendly. I had the Chesapeake burger and it was really good. Only negative you cannot substitute anything on the menu even if you pay more. I asked for onion rings instead of the seasoned fries which i don't care for but i was told no subs. I offered to pay more and i was still told... More
