We stopped in for lunch at this busy place near the WMU football stadium. We loved the atmosphere and the service was great.

They are owned by Main street, same kind of food. Bigger place, they have live music some times....get their mixed drinks though they are good. However unlike Main Street they do not give you the shaker to keep re-filling your cocktail....fyi.
