We came in for dinner and it was great! We had an elk brat and garlic fries for an app which comes with the best cheese sauce I've ever had. The burgers and beers were great too (as was the service). Highly recommended!

I made the mistake of ordering the Bay Shrimp Wedge Salad. I didn't know what "Bay" shrimp were, so that is my fault. It's just tiny tasteless canned shrimp...yuck! (Shouldn't even be on the menu). Anyway... I liked the gorgonzola salad dressing, but it was...More

this is a bar/pub that serves bar food. If you have children, do yourself and you children a favor and go early for dinner. I did not see conventional high chairs last fall.
