Had dinner with the kids and grandkids the other evening. Typical bar food menu presented in an okay way. Service was fine, but not great. To their credit though, they were responsive to the kids who were drinking lots of milk. The food was nothing special. I ordered a pizza. Thin crust without a lot of flavor on the build... More

Love to sit outside here or in. Food is dependable and waitstaff always friendly. Occasionally food can be slow but we go back almost weekly and it is not the standard.

Stopped in for dinner after watching a volleyball game (it is one of the closest places to go to). The place is a sports bar that is casual and provides average type of food. The service was very good considering we were in a hurry to get back to the volleyball match. Our group had a variety of choices from... More

After receiving two stellar recommendations from two different friends, my husband and I visited this past Saturday evening. We have been looking for somewhere new to try and after taking a look at the menu, mouths watering, we headed over. We arrived at 7:45pm and the place was packed. Good sign. UNFORTUNATELY as we encounter a lot anymore, the staff... More

My favorite is substituting roasted carrots for french fries. Such a healthy alternative! My best "go to" restaurant, casual and inviting.

Went with good friends on a Saturday evening. Place was about 70% full. Waitperson was cheerful but very disorganized. Forgot something about everyone's order. Forgot silverware & napkins. Disappeared for long periods' Food was ok. Drinks were way too expensive to make it a regular visit. Will give it a few months to work kinks out.

We had dinner here on Saturday night, was very crowded, a good sign. The food was excellent, tried the salmon, chilli dogs, burgers, and chicken parm. All were served hot, large portions, and perfectly cooked. Nice variety on menu and all we tried was great which was unusual in our experience. Service was a little spotty due to large crowd...
