The menu is full of cool comfort food. I had the Shepherds pie, it was stew like with a pot roast type of meat, loved it! My husband had a cob salad.The portions are large and the staff is very nice. Great place!

I got pizza next door, and asked for a beer. No beer. But they told me I could eat next door. Sure enough. Friendly staff. Nice tunes. Easy, free parking. About 8 beers on draft.

We were a party of 4. We were all very pleased with our dinners. Great wait staff. One had the Sheppard's Pie she said it was very tasty. We had steaks and some seafood. I would recommend it to anyone staying in the area.
