We use to come here for the great music and the interaction of the guitar player/singer/owner. Well I guess he's gone now. Me and my two sisters spent a few hours trying to get the mediocre singer to get the crowd going. To no avail we left along will many other people. This place is not what it used to... More

Brendan McKinney was so fun and welcoming. Great music but not too loud. Loved watching the Olympics with this crowd!

Very good food and the patio is a lot of fun. The nachos were REALLY as good as the menu says. The service was the best we had at any restaurant in the village and the prices are way better. I will definitely return. Sarah S. is the waitress to ask for I promise.

they have a good burger and great location and live music. the service is always average and never particularly friendly. They say family friendly but I have never found it to be. I only go if someone I know asks me to meet them there. There are better burgers in Vail and much better service.

The brisket/rib plate was huge and tasty. Cole slaw was yummy. French dip was ok. Not warm enough. Kind of noisy.

We usually get the loaded nachos. Big portions for hungry teens, casual dining. Patio seating is our favorite with a view of Vail village.

Love the setting and the scene -- just wished they could cook a little better -- they have live loud and not very good music most nights

We waited 10 minutes to be seated even though there was no wait-just a disorganized staff. After being seated another 20 minute wait for the server followed. Food came relatively quickly but chicken sandwich was not cooked. One order was entered wrong, food finally came out after everyone else was done eating.

Went in with a group of six. Waited over 30 minutes to get waited on. They seemed to forget we were there and when we brought to their attention they were nice but took 10 more minutes. Food was just ok. Been there in the past and had much better food and service.

Thank Cindi A
