We read that there are homemade chips so we had to try it. All the food was great, the kids meals were actually sizable so that was good. The apple and fruit salad was giant and very fresh. Also had the fish tacos and hand battered cod and they were also very good. A great place to stop.

Ordered the ribs and they were too tough to eat. The Coleslaw was the worst coleslaw I've ever had. I would never go back

Good sandwiches, burgers, and soup with a bar area. Back room is more formal with more ambience . The front section is great for more natural light.

Had a quick drink and app at the bar, not many people for a weekday so it was pleasant to talk to our waitress.

I had the fish tacos with shrimp and they were outstanding. This is a relaxed, casual restaurant. My huband had the pulled pork sandwish which was also very good. Both came with onion mounds

We went in just for drinks and app's and it was great. The bar staff was personably, friendly and attentive. The four different app's our group ordered were on time, the right temperature and great. Would go back. If you eat it looks like this place could stay pretty busy.

I went to this place and the staff was rude and disrespectful, not sure if it was because I am Mexican and the whit waitress didn't feel loved like serving a Mexican but I will never go back. I usually do not leave reviews on any site but the waitresses disrespectful words of "your people" was intolerable. It's unbelievable this... More
