Met some friends for lunch over the weekend and had a great time. Food was very good and reasonably priced, the server Shelly is a riot! It may be a bit older and run down but suits us just fine when we are in the area, cold beverages and great food at an affordable price...what more would you want?

Excellent food, great service and reasonable prices. Their cheeseburgers are to-die-for! Have never had an issue with anything I have ordered though

A quaint little country bar that was hopping. The DJ/entertainment was very engaging. The beer was cold, the staff very friendly. Would go back in a minute.

If you're feeling like fresh fish & chips, this is the place to go - super fresh fish & real fries! They also do amazing wings - homemade in-house recipe.

I know this sounds cliched, but honestly, even though the surroundings are basic, the food was hot and tasty and the steak cooked exactly as I liked. I recommended this to everyone for weeks.
