Been going here for a couple of years. On one of my first visits the bartender asked my name and although I sporadically went there, she called me by my name which I found very impressive. This is definitely a local hang out in town but staff and patrons are very friendly and there is actually a very good beer... More

As some people already mentioned, this place doesn't look like much, but the food is delicious. My wife started with a garden salad, and I ordered some medium Buffalo traditional Wings. The salad looked great, my wife said it was. The wings could go toe-to-toe with any of the best Wing joints. One of my kids got mozzarella cheese sticks,... More

Local, family owned bar. The servers are nice and everyone helps everyone. The food was tasty - prices a bit high for a small town bar. It is a bit lacking in terms of atmosphere as you can see the condiments pulled from a kitchen refrigerator right by the bathrooms - and the grill for food is clearly visible. But... More

It had been a while since we were last here. My wife and I both had burgers. They seemed to be a little smaller than our last trip but just as good. They also have a punch card for return visits. 10 purchases over $5 gets you a free burger and fries. Service tends to be a bit on the... More

This is a dark bar where they pour a small drink, stick with beer. There is not much in the way of updates and decoration. It's lively, the food is fried but it's good bar food. They have fish fries on Friday nights and you can get it the way you like it. It can be rowdy but there are... More

One of our favorite places for a tasty casual lunch. Not much to look at and the inside needs work. But friendly people and good food. A beef sandwich special with au jus to dip and great burgers are our favorites. Have no idea what its like other than at lunch. They have parking in back and aback door.

From the taped up pleather seats to the cooker with old oil, this is a place to avoid. Dark, gloomy interior and inferior food. Don't go here!

My spouse and I ventured to Buchanan which is out in the middle of no where as it relates to Saint Joseph, to use our Superbook coupon of buy one get one free meal. We were pleasantly surprised at the great burgers they put out at this little place. Service was great with a friendly waitress with a upbeat attitude... More

We enjoyed a relaxing evening with friends and enjoyed listening to the band playing oldies tunes. The bar food was fairly good but they do have some great specials during the week,

This is worth the extra drive on a Friday night for some of the best fish that you're ever going to eat....and saying that, I'm not typically a fish fan unless it lived in a shell. Atmosphere is true bar setting and you may have to wait a bit as there are only a couple of waitresses but this is... More
