First time here because we always thought of it as just a bar. But today we decided to give it a try. Pros: Classic Hamburger with fries was super great. The waitress was friendly.place looked clean. Cons: I know it’s a bar cafe but I...m not crazy about really dark places to eat. The cheese sauce on the Nachos was not hot and they were kind enough to stick it in the microwave but was still just Luke warm when she brought it back to the table.More

I arrived at 5:45pm to eat, and watch the game. I wasn't even approached until it was too late to order from the kitchen. 6pm is their kitchen cut off time. If this is a family café, why not serve dinner for families? I did...hear there are new owners, and I did notice my favorite's were no longer on the menu. Very sad to see this. I didn't get a drink, get food or watch the game.More

Had a great lunch here in the classic pub. Good quality food , friendly staff and efficient. Nice environment to drink a beer or enjoy a meal. Club sandwich was spot on. Not too busy at lunch, kind of refreshing. Has been through s few...ownership changes of late. Current group seems to have it dialed-in.More

I've been here a few times for breakfast with my friends & yum! Last time I went, I had a plate of the best French toast I've ever ate. I also had 2 really great bloody Mary's.

It looks a bit rough from the street but they're friendly in there and have excellent food. They open at 0600 and serve breakfast early along with drinks or coffee. Mostly neighborhood people and oil field workers. Big burgers and grilled right, make sure you're...hungry.More
