Walk in, find a spot, pick your drinks and food and it's just wonderful. This has become our weekly go-to for a quick, comfy meal and have no reason to change. :)

I went once for dinner and several for a beer and appetizers. The staff was very friendly and there was a wide variety of food on the menu. There are TVs to watch sports when there special tournament programs.

Food and service are very good. Burgers are the best. Ever time we go to the Purple Rose we stop in for a drink then walk right over to the theater.

Cleary's offers good food and the service is great. Always a sporting event on the tv. Love the homemade soup and ruben sandwich.

I am sorry but I don't know that either. It can be pretty crowded on Friday and Saturday nights during the busy hours (6 p.m. +) but other days there is always a table.
