“comfortable and casual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Part of the Springfield group in the area, this is the most casual place, comfy atmosphere...seems to be busy all the time. Salads and sandwiches along with some dinners. Open long hours, an hour wait for a table last Saturday nite at 7:30. Food is rather predictable, but in a good way. Competently executed pretty standard stuff....lots of bugers, homemade fries, reubens.....stuff like that. Lots of intetesting beers on tap. No culinary destination, but this is the kind of place lots of people are happy with.

“Nice atmosphere, great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have eaten at this restaurant many times and never been disappointed. The atmosphere is casual and it is always busy but usually not too busy to be seated quickly. They have nice daily specials and a full bar.

“just like i remember”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Good value for a filling lunch. Bar food just like you'd expect at a reasonable price. Fun to visit again after 20 years.

“really like sitting at the bar and watching the action in the kitchen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

the food isn't as good as it was a few years ago and we go often. They are giving up making more food in house, ordering from outside firms (smelts were terrible), but we still like the jalapeno shrimps and pretzel with cheese.
