We were going to eat across the street, but the restaurant, across the street was just about empty. Down on Main was very busy. We followed the crowd and weren't disappointed. Friendly and fast service and the food was good. This restaurant is a sports bar and many families were enjoying the facilities

I also enjoyed two ice cold... More

Med Rare with nice veggies and very good bread and 'taters. Not a fancy or upscale place, this is just a local bar/restaurant and they are very good at what they do. Good staff and good service.

Love the sports bar feel! Food and service are ok. The prime rib offered on weekends is great! Their macaroni and cheese is to die for!

Was expecting this to be a more upscale place by the location and the reviews. Essentially is a bar with Bar food. The fried potatoes were great but the steak was just a piece of meat with no seasoning. similar to a waffle house steak. I am sure they do have an awesome selections, but this place is not for...

A sports bar/pub/restaurant. Just the basics for a neighborhood pub. Several good size TV screens, a full bar, & good variety of menu items. The atmosphere is that of a hometown pub, nothing fancy but plenty of seating. You feel welcome, service is good, very casual. We had the prime rib special, 6oz (closer to 8 oz) plus 2 sides....
