The food & service was ok. It's very nice & big inside with a big bowling alley. There's gambling, like horse races and keno.

Great place and we come here each time we are in town. A quirky and fun bar/restaurant with pretty good food and a great drink menu. Staff is great, especially Rich! We always have a blast and talk about it to friends and family.

Visited here over two days whilst we were at nearby (5min drive) Cedar Point. Varied menu, very competitive prices, family friendly and a waiter with an amazing memory ( he remembered us from the previous day and exactly what we had to eat & drink). Highly recommend yhis establishment.
