New to the area, I cruised in having heard about their Reuben Sandwich with homemade corned beef. I was not disappointed.

We really enjoyed ourselves. Went there for dinner and got a musical bonus! Great vibe going on in there! The Big Dog Mercer Band and other local musicians kept us entertained all evening! Definitely will be coming back on Sunday nights!

Yes, it's the place where everyone knows your name! Just a great place to get some food, drinks, watch the game and hang out. Fun for the kids too. I like their daily specials and burgers.

A recent, first time visit was bittersweet for me. The overall atmosphere is a good, friendly, neighborhood place. Then I ordered a hamburger. I politely took a few bites and left the rest. I'll be back for the drinks, but I'll eat before I arrive.

On a weekday lunch outing, my wife and I decided to try this place. We weren't very hungry so we split an appetizer assortment. The food was cooked well and served efficiently and we took home enough for a cold supper that evening. I expect...More
