Fun brew pub type place. We stopped by for beer and were not disappointed. The menu looked great! We happened by on a Wednesday night and there was an amazing lead guitarist working with a few sound tracks. We loved it! Our server was awesome!

Been here quite a few times for all sorts of different things. This place is an institution, really is and you are bound to come across some characters, especially in the evenings when it gets really packed with regular drinkers. Not being a huge drinker, I come for the food. And really, for what truly is just a bar, this... More

Comfortable place with plenty of seating. Good happy hour deals and generous food portions. Noteworthy pizza and salads which is unusual for bar food: fresh ingredients. Any the chicken wings are huge. Friendly wait staff. Indoor and outdoor seating. Enjoy!

Me and Sis stopped in for the most meaty wings in town. Sat outside and listed to Moss Jones bad. Beautiful Indian Summer night. Megan was our waitress and did an awsome job. Thanks!

We attempted to dine at a Mexican restaurant and BBQ joint but both closed on Sunday before the 4th. We asked the Uber driver to just keep going until we found something. BOOM! Perfect spot for our motorcycle riding group. Fun place! Decorated old style, quirky, antiquey, rustic, dive like, lodgey looking, etc. Great bloody Mary's and on special for... More

This is a good 'ol bar restaurant. Many regulars but we felt welcome. The burgers were delish. Enough for leftovers. Nice outdoor patio. We were there for the Stella Cidre girls and ended up with a couple of free pints.

Great atmosphere and music in western setting. Visit if you have the time to linger because service very slow.

I live here in this town, I have been to this Rock Rest Lodge twice, I will not go a third time. The bartender was snobby and the food was not very good. The place looked to be unclean and very unfriendly. Look good on the outside, but not on the inside.

The prices of the drinks at this place are incredible. We came one night at 8:30 for drinks and I had 7 whiskey and cokes for $27.00. Luckily, I was not the DD. We rushed back the next night allured by the buckets o wings and we were not disappointed. We split a burger with sweet potato tater tots (Amazing)... More
