Service was pleasant, food choices were interesting on the menu, but the pork chop was not exciting.Portions were generous. The world series on the flat screens made it better.

Food is good. The drinks are good, but seem to always be very weak. The atmosphere is nice, they have outdoor seating which is fantastic on a nice day.
