The food quality is good and they have good choice. The most important thing is that they take reservations for groups.

The service was awful. Our server spent the entire time dealing with issues totally unrelated to serving customers. Never brought the soup, and it was hard to tell if the food was good because it was cold.

This was a great place to just go out to the and take it easy. Plenty of local beers to choose from and their menu was a great mix of appetizers to steak. We had pizza that was some of the best around.
