You wouldn't think that this place in the middle of a large shopping plaza would be a decent place to get a burger, but it is. The bar makes the entrance a bit narrow, but it widens up in the back, allowing space for a lot of tables. The staff was friendly, but not overbearing. One issue I had was... More

No matter how young or old you are, there is something for you to enjoy here. With the unlimited wine/beer with your entrée, it's a no brainer for adults and for the children, the back room is conducive to them being a little noisy without disturbing the rest of the diners. Better get there early (before 5pm) if you don't... More

As a bar it is ok, lots of regulars. The dining area is nice. Overall it is a plain place with very good food. The marinated steak is very good and you can't go wrong with the burgers. Meals come with salad, a carafe of wine, a small picture of beer or a small pitcher of soda. A great spot... More

Sounds good....."free wine or beer" with dinner. The food is just ok. Nothing fancy. Not even a great hamburger. With the booze, you actually think its better than it is

The marinated steak is excellent as are the special wing appetizer. Each meal comes with either a carafe of wine, a pitcher of beer or soda and salad. The staff is friendly and Lewie the bartender is among the best of his craft.

We sat in the back dining room for a late night dinner and the food was very good. It got a little noisy at the bar area because a game was playing on the TV, but it wasn't overly loud where we couldn't hear each other. I had a french dip that was called something else (sports themed) and the... More
