“Great afterwork spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Gets crowded quick, for good reason. Great microbrew beer brewed onsite. All food items are great. Bartender Dave will take good care of you. Friendly people.

“Good Food and Good Times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

This restaurant is one large open room with booths for seating. It is noisy in a good way. Having a meal here is uplifting and every time I eat there I feel better than when I came in. Great food and service in a "hubbuby" way.

“SweetWater”

Noisy and hard to easily carry on conversation. Food okay. Service was fine without a long wait. No other comments.

“Excellent Food! Excellent Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Stopped by today for lunch. Yes lots of people but no wait, big place. Servers excel, help each other, always looking at tables when walking by to be sure everyone has what they need. Food arrived quickly. I got grilled pork chop- the very best pork chop I have eaten in a very long time! Tastes like that wonderful grill smell that hits you when walking in the door. Came with mashed potatoes that were awesome, full of flavor. Husband got Southwestern chicken salad and loved it, commented that there was lots of chicken compared to other places. Prices are good too. Highly recommend. One tip, their website may not be up to date for daily soup. Enjoy!
