Great little place to stop in, have a drink and light snack, analysts something interesting going on inside. Can get a little loud on weekends.

Love everything about this place! Laid back atmosphere, good food, right price! If you are looking for a inexpensive night out with good quality food and service, this is the place! Variety of apps, salads and sandwiches. A few entrees. Great beer selection. Everyone is friendly, servers, bartenders, kitchen staff, fellow patrons.

Sara the waitress is fun, the beer selection is good, I understand it gets crazy crowded when they have live entertainment. We had average sandwiches, but it is local and friendly with a fun atmosphere.

Have been to dinner here several times - the quesadillas are very good as are the sandwiches. Ended up staying for the karaoke which had a fun crowd. Nice local place to hang out.

The best cheese steak outside of Philly. Wonderful onion rings. Service okay, no complaints. Good prices for the portions.

From a nice local selection of draft beers, to great food, this is a nice local place to grab a bite to eat. Local music on the weekends. Also not too far off the greenway for the bike riders coming out of raleigh. Nice burgers, salads and the nacho chips are wonderful!
