Enjoyed casual friendly lunch ! The garden salad was nicely presented with toppings nicely separately so it could be split according to personal preferences and choice of additional dressing was given upon request. Whitefish tacos were very good..waitress was friendly! Large sports bar dining area.

I ate in the bar. Service was casual and not that great. The server stopped by to take my order while carrying all the dirty dishes from the table just bussed. I just couldn’t imagine ordering dinner while looking at the partially consumed remnants of...More
