If you love wings you need to visit this place. There are a lot, I mean a lot, of choices for wings. We had a few to share and they were all delicious!

I have wanted to try the wings for a long time. I finally made it there today. The wings are as good as I had heard they were. Delicious and great service as well. Don't be put off if you see a few motorcycles out front, it is a nice place with great food.

First of all the parking seemed scarce, however We later found out that you can park across the street at the vacant factory and there is a parking lot around the corner. The doorman met us and...

You will not find a better burger anywhere EVER! The Maple Butter Bacon Burger is the best. The 'sauce' is heavenly. Great fries and onion rings too. Good service. Be prepared for a loud venue as it is a bar type atmosphere, but if you're craving a delectable burger you must visit the Dew Drop Inn.

My GF and I went here early on a Sunday evening after a movie. The place was full of diners as well as bar was packed. We put our name on the list and had to wait about 45 minutes. The place has over 5 bartenders/servers, so there feels like no need to feel neglected. We were asked several times... More

Best selection of wings I've ever seen! The flavors they put together are unbelievable! I've heard their steaks are great too, trying that next time we go. Love that they limit drinks if you have kids with you, very responsible of the owners.

Lots of flavors and always good! Best wings in the valley! Wish they had a little more parking, but really good! I can't believe it took me so long to try this place!

The beer prices are higher than most, but they serve the best steak around. Comes with carrots and mashed potatoes....no choices there. Well worth a trip to this restaurant if you are a steak eater. Never tries anything else.
