The burgers are very good. Sufficient beer list. We were shuttled down stairs by the bowling alley. It was loud, hot and uninspiring. Service was so-so. On a weekday night with a table upstairs, this would probably get a higher rating.

Yum. Nothing better than burgers and fries. The Nook offers the most delicious bar food, would 10/10 recommend the sweet potato fries. Always a great meal.

Consistently great, juicy burgers. It is a small restaurant and it can sometimes be difficult to find close parking but it is well worth the wait and the parking hassle. Bowling in the basement.
