Great atmosphere. We sat outside and had burgers and wings for dinner. The waitress recommended a good local beer to complement dinner. Nice place. I would go back.

Great place to grab appetizers and beer with a group of friends! Megan was our waitress and really helpful/attentive. There were three of us in total and sat at a high top by the bar. Would definitely return! Nachos were delicious.

First time there and had some excellent bar food - chicken spring rolls along with great draft beer. Recommend if you are looking for place to have a bite and a beer.

They have outside seating where people had pets with them, but I think only service animals are permitted inside. Hope this helps.
