I've been several times along with various friends and family and everyone always leaves happy. There's a good selection of food and beverage and also a great atmosphere.

My refreshing Das Boot and the fresh, cold lemon ice water were just perfect on a weeknight as my family and I waited for our meals. The food was fresh and hot, and was generous. I couldn't finish my burger! I recommend a casual Pokemon Go dinner!

Food is good for casual eating. Large variety of homecrafted beers incl beer samplers add to the fun. Easy to park. Recommend reserving a table as it is always crowded.

Very surprised by their food! It was excellent! Bacon wrapped scallops and crab cakes were very good. Our waiter was knowledgeable about their craft beer selection and food. Staff were all friendly.

The food has gone way down hill over the years. It was not clean and I had to send silverware back because it was still dirty. The place gets so crowded you can't even move in the bar area. It is located on Main Street in the heart of college town. Sadly this used to be a very good place... More

Lots of memories made here. The service is always good, usually younger wait staff, the food is spot on. We even did New Years Eve here one year and enjoyed the steak and wine! good appetizers and beer choices.Hardly ever need a reservation, but never empty.

Thank glcindy514
