Good food but not the cleanest place in town. Gets pretty noisy. Caters to a younger crowd at night. Tasty food and portions are big.

The food we had (shrimp tempura and a pizza) were very good, but we didn't care so much for the atmosphere. It's a bar with a few high top tables and two booths - nothing fancy. The beer selection is also rather limited, with the...More

Nice place to hang out for a beer and good food. If they have music that is a bonus. Ask about the specials you won’t be sorry and you can ask for low carb options or naked sandwiches:)
