I went here with a couple friends. It's just a crappy dive sports bar. It looks awful inside. Old furniture. The food is regular bad bar food. Fried stuff with no flavor. I wouldn't return. It was a waste of money.

The oysters "awfulfellow" and the salad were good... More

I went at a different time than when my boyfriend and I went. Had the large steamed plate with calamari for an appetizer. Everything was delicious! I will go back when we are in the area.

My better half got the tuna steak, cole slaw and loaded baked potato with no cheese. The wait for the food was OK, but when it did arrive the food looked like it had sat a... More
