Went here for lunch and the food was fabulous! The truffle tots were so good. We also shared the brisket cheddar fries witch was equally as good. Would for sure come back again!

Cross between a pool hall, bar and grill. Plenty of seating, lots of screens to watch sports. Country music playing. Food selection is all made from scratch, I recommend the Peanut Butter Burger! Staff is super friendly and attentive. Will definitely be coming back!
