4 Happy campers, have been wanting to stop in and very glad we did. We were told it would be 20 minutes, instead about 5 minutes later we were seated in the basement/bowling area. The atmosphere is fun, great place to hang out while waiting on meals. We all had different burgers and everyone was very happy. The malts were... More

best to get there early and have someone drive you home when happy our is over( 3-6 pm) Can't beat the 1/2 price appetizers and beer. this place is a great place to eat and gets crowded fast so it can be a wait for your food since the kitchen is small just sit back and have another beer it...

Great authentic place for an exceptional burger. Was packed when we arrived and were seated downstairs (who knew there was a vintage bowling alley down there??). Instantly relaxed and fell right into the great vibe and energy of the place!

THE place for comfort food, the BEST hamburger, HOMEMADE fries and tap BEER. Saddle up to the bar alone, meet a friend, enjoy a family meal - enough said.

Good food, some nice tap beer choices. If you're in the neighborhood, it's a must go. If you're a ways away, there are probably many places just like it a lot closer to you.

We were in the area for a basketball game and it just so happened the Nook was right across the street. That, combined with the recommendation of everyone that I know in the area, led us to have lunch at the Nook. This place was featured on the Food Network a few years ago and once you eat here, you'll... More

I think we got lucky because we ate early and there was no wait. The honey glazed bacon cheese curds were very good. The beer specials & 1/2 priced appetizers during happy hour were a nice thing. First Juicy Lucy we ever had. Tasty and everyone in the family enjoyed it. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of extremely pink... More
