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.

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!

First recommendation if you do decide to try this place out is DON'T take kids. This place is NOT family friendly. The owners and staff are really rude when it comes to little ones and any noise they might make. Second recommendation, don't go expecting great food. It's ok at best.
