“A great place for dinner and nice place to sit outside it you prefer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Went for Friday night and there was a wait for a table inside so we opted to go thru the restaurant and eat outside where there was no wait...it was great. The weather made it work and made sense for us. The food was good the waiters were great...some at our party had a big meal, others had burgers and they all were great!

“Great Food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Food was well prepared and reasonably priced.Service was very good and attentive. They have one of the best draft beer selections I have seen, if this is your thing, while remaining a good place to bring a family.

“Fun, almost party atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We asked, Where do the locals eat?" When we checked in to our hotel. After a short drive, we found a spacious parking lot and a restaurant with a steady stream of people going in and out. The entrance was not impressive, and we were sat at the table by the kitchen door. A bit disappointing. However, the menu had something for everybody. The food was good. We enjoyed the atmosphere the most. Definitely a local hangout. Lots of college kids. Lots of energy. Actually, the patrons fell into every age group. Definitely worth visiting.

“Fun college environment, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Lots to choose from on the menu and the service was very good. Nice back patio and plenty of parking. Had a nice time with a group here, and everyone liked their food. Place is a bit of an institution being across the street from the college. Still worthwhile place to meet up with friends and have a good time.

“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

I think if you were wanting a calzone and you were already down on Main St., then this is the way to go. I find it quite average. I've had breakfast and dinner there a couple of times. I will say that if you want eggs bendidict then this is one of the only places you'll find it in town.
