Waited an hour for food. Waitress was apologetic at one point but nothing was done by management. When approached, the response was completely rude and unapologetic. “You ate it, so you pay for it” is no way to treat a customer. I will never return...More

Terrible experience. Took an hour for our food to arrive. When I brought it up to the owner and requested money off my bill, his response was 'you ate it, you're paying for it!' No apolgies just defensive and rude. Do not go here.

I go here a lot with friends for pool and darts. It’s a great atmosphere and the drinks are cheap and tasty. The downstairs restaurant is awesome. I had the coconut shrimp with Brussels sprout cole slaw which was awesome. The soup was delicious too....More

Stopped in for lunch. Friendly service and nice atmosphere. Steak was great! We had a pleasant visit with the owner. Will definitely return and I recommend you give it a try.

Absolutely the worst management/owners ever. Turnaround here is ridiculous. Owners degrade and yell at employees in front of customers for no reason.( have been here a couple times for drinks - never again!) Food is Sub-par at best. Do not go!

Waitress was nice. Renovation beautiful! Loved the decor and the atmosphere. Burger was okay. Breakfast was awful: inedible. Waffles were soggy, bacon 🥓 tough, eggs not mixed or cooked well. (Comped the breakfast.) Terribly slow, wasted a lot of time on food we didn’t enjoy...More

The atmosphere is great. Each time we have been there the server has been very friendly. The menu is very limited. Food is average.The service is VERY VERY VERY SLOWWWW. Lunch is better than dinner.

We were the only people in the bar. Requested burger medium. It was more then well done. If my burger was done to my request. ..very good.. Then tomatoe bisque soup...it was so terribly salty. I couldn't even finish the soup.

I'm a local. Been there a bunch of times. What you have here is an old time bar with a great location that recently underwent a huge remodel. The space is big....upstairs ... very big... but it's sort of a rambling mish mash of themes...More

I liked the upstairs bar, billiard area, and deck. The remodel was done tastefully but does not yet appear to be finished. The service and food were terrible. New restaurants frequently start like this and I hope they overcome it. Until then, I'll stay away...More
