The restaurant is always very clean. The staff is always extremely nice and accommodating. The food is really good from appetizers to desserts and everywhere in between. We love hosting karaoke on Saturday nights with Angela Montgomery Carter representing RG1 Productions.

Best beer selection in town or at least that I have found. The service is really good too. I usually just grab a spot at the bar and play some trivia or watch whatever sporting event is on.

Great food. We had a group of eight everything was good. Cheeseburgers are great. Kept drinks full. Slight wait at the beginning but worth it.
