Come here and watch a game with the gang and grab some burgers and beers, or bring the family for a casual dinner (and sneak a peek at the game on one of their many big TVs). Weather permitting, there are cornhole boards outside. No surprises in the menu. Affordable and local.

My daughter raved about the food and service, but to be honest, to me it was average. I think in an effort to get our table's food delivered together, my burger and fries sat in the window a bit as the fries were cold and soggy and the burger was lukewarm. Taste-wise, it was acceptable. It was a Saturday night... More

This is your standard pub menu with burgers, wings, pizza, etc. The Pub Burger is HUGE! Great service and the food is good. Average about $10.00 per person.

this bar/restaurant is the best. Where else can you go on a Sunday to watch any game of football you want. It was fantastic and the beer specials and choices are great.

First time visit here for lunch...BBQ Sandwich/fries for me and chicken salad for wife. Food was very good...service from either a new or non caring server was so-so.

We met friends for dinner as they had eaten here before and told us how good it was. Well they were correct. Everything was great. My wife had a margarita and the fish and chips. I had the shrimp taco. All was very good. We even split a baked cobbler for desert. We will definitely return again and again.

Always great place for large groups after the game or during the game. Food can be pricey depending on what you get, but it is always good and always fresh. Occasionally for large groups service can be somewhat slow, but typical of this kind of restaurant. They have favorites like the Dipper and the wings that are always delicious and... More

Hard to mess up a Caesar salad, but they did. Lettuce core mixed in, leafs were wilted somewhat. Chicken blackened on outside and pink in middle. Nachos were specifically ordered with melted shredded cheese, instead it was presented with cheese poured on it, and there was only one little shred of chicken in the large size. Would not recommend this... More
