“Good lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

A nice place to get a relatively quick lunch meal. Service is good. Prices are a little high for lunch, but the daily special pricing makes it a better bargain. Atmosphere is a friendly one.

“Got to have the crab nachos!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012 via mobile

Nice pub, lots of tvs and great seating away from bar. They have days with half priced nachos, steak sandwhiches . But you really need to try the crab nachos!

“Nice variety but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012 via mobile

The menu has a lot of variety- something for everyone. the prices and food are good but not great. it's better than what you'd expect from a "bar and grille" but not the fine dining they advertise.

“Great happy hour bargains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

Appetizers are only $4.00 during happy hour and very good. Food overall is very good. Drinks are good proportions. Easily accessible.

“A very nice convenient place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

I have had several drinks here over the years. It is very consistent with good friendly service. Would I drive 20 miles to it, no. But it is a great choice if in the area. Good food, good service, good price. It works for me. The salmon salad is awesome. I have not eaten them because I am from the southwest, but I see a lot of people ordering their fajitas.
