Visited this restaurant recently and did not enjoy the food. Everything was overly greasy and tasteless. Not clean at all either. We will never be back.

I love this place and it's just fun to hang out at. Everyone is local, the food is good and it is super casual. Good for grabbing a sandwich and a beer!

Hooked up with an old student that had not seen since 1975. We had appetizers and caught up in years of memories. The food and the service are EXCELLENT. Great little bar/restaurant
