Enjoyed a wonderful fish lunch with onion rings! 4 large portions of a lightly battered thick fish and deep fried. Cooked to perfection, with an outstanding flavor! Service was nice also! Here on business and with an hour for lunch, I was accommodated very well...More

The place wasn't too loud or too crowded. The bartender has been there 10 years and there was a locals vibe to the bar, but in a nice way. Drinks were good with a nice beer selection and they served food late, so it was...More
