Love this place! Moved here to SJDS three weeks ago and quickly found this place to be friendly and welcoming. Great specials, great entertainment, great staff, and a bunch of super cool and funny regulars. If you like to laugh and smile, this is one of the places to hangout at!

Well, I was happy that they offered some fairly appealing vegetarian options. I ate a falafel burger and then turned to my fries and saw they'd allowed a bunch of nasty bacon chunks to fall into them, or maybe they make them that way I don't know but it was gross and puts me off eating there again.

Popped into the bar for a drink. Splurged $150c on an espresso martini. Yummy and worth it for a treat. Country music wasn't my thing but might be yours?
