As a restaurant, this is a homey, yummy place to eat for the whole family. But my favorite part is when they get live bands. The Mooks, Sound Investment, Dr. Danger, Catalina Eddy and many more excellent local bands play here often.

All the food we've ever had here is great but the chicken is some of the best anywhere. Even great to take home!
