“Great burgers and patio seating and I'd definitely rate much higher BUT....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

even after years at this locale, management has YET to figure out how to turn a table (i.e., keep things moving.) It is quite frustrating to wait for a patio table for over an hour while watching dinner patrons who finished dining long, long ago continue to occupy the table while ordering cup after cup of coffee or nursing drinks long into the night. We have actually walked out more often then we have stayed to dine because waiting for occupied tables that are simply taking up real estate is quite frustrating. The thing is, there really is no excuse for it. Politely and courteously turning a table is elementary to any experienced restaurant proprietor.
I'm really not sure we have any desire to return.

“Sports Bar/Pub with flare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Great place to enjoy a variety of good beer, full bar, and pub food. While you wait for your meal, indulge in the potato thins, plain or sauced. These aren't fries and they're not potato chips, they're a hybrid, fresh and addictive. No gluten free beer anymore. Reasonably priced pub food.

“Burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

This is our go to Restaurant Bar for a very good burger. They also have a nice menu of things you might not find elsewhere. Reasonably price on all the menu items. The only down side is that they are very controlling of the seating. If there are just 2 of you and the only seats are for 4 you will have to wait. Quite a few times we left to go elsewhere.
