This place is exactly as you might expect... ice cold cheap beer, good bar food and lots of people watching. Super sized Jenga on the bar was a lot of fun.

Great little bar to get a bite and a beer. Friendly patrons (Hi, Todd, hope all's well). The only complaint is that we had to overhear the bartender complaining about working there, but everyone else was great and the food was fantastic!!

We stopped here after a day of play at Cedar Point - I'm almost 100% sure this is 85% of their business here! Great place to stop to unwind, have a few beers, and eat some great food. While i remember my "SOB Burger" and house chips, i don't have any memory of the waitress or the environment. We brought... More

It looks like a bar from the outside, but it is actually good for families at least during the day. I ordered a deep dish personal pizza which was decent. Prices are okay, a lot of variety on the menu. Fun environment. I would eat here again and be willing to try other items.
