Great and friendly place. Food was great and plenty...perfect for our visit when needed some comfort food away from home and in cold weather. Waitress (Ruby) was very helpful and great! Would visit again for sure!

We went in for drinks and watch a few football games. The place was cute and very busy. The drinks were good and we loved the atmosphere.
