I simply LOVE this restaurant! There are tons of beers to choose from, both craft and domestic, and many are on draft. To make life easier on diners, they even have a beer list, something I always appreciate in a restaurant with a large drink menu. The food is also delightful! I always order a basic Tavern burger with sweet... More

If you have a family or large group this is an excellent choice. While it is easily described as a "sports bar," the selection of food is impressive and the atmosphere is still fine for a family. If you have a group with diverse tastes looking for a post round meal, then this is an excellent choice. Everything from Steak,... More

Large sports bar with TV’s everywhere and lots of folks enjoying the games on a Sunday night. Big bar area and an even larger dining room and an outdoor patio (would have been nice to sit there but some folks had reserved it for a meeting). Also a separate indoor room that was full of NHL fans. Huge selection of... More

I'm still in awe of this meal. I had the "chicken fried chicken" with mashed potatoes and collards. Simple meal yet every bite was as good as the first. The collards must have been prepared by a warlock. I still cannot figure out what they put in them to make them so good. I have been through culinary school and... More

Came here with another couple as this has become one of our favorite eateries. Their NY strip is excellent. Also had BYO salad which was yummy. We like to eat outside but appreciate eating inside as well. Service was good. We will come again.

Check this place out for a quick beer or like our group did, for dinner after a great day of golf! Professional service, good food, and all in a nice, relaxed atmosphere - you'll love it!

This is an average bar-type restaurant with basic food. The beer menu was good. However, I was quite put off when the waitress says "Have you ever been here before?" and after we say "no" she tells us about the menus and asks "Would you like chips for the table." Thinking it is like popcorn at other places, or chips... More
