“Beautiful bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

My wife and I stop by for a quick bite to eat. It is a beautiful bar, with a very friendly and accommodating staff. My wife has various diet restrictions and they worked hard to come up with something for us. We settled on a veggie pizza which was good. The staff couldn't have been nicer. They had a nice variety of beer as well.

“hit the spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

The bar staff was extremely friendly, and attentive to our needs. I had the RAT burger w/ chicken instead of beef, and it has to be one of the best chicken burgers I've ever had. The cheese was gooey perfection, the chicken was marinated and grilled just right, and the bread......best bun ever. I was in food heaven.
