the burgers were great as was the atmosphere of the restaurant. Can't wait to come back to the area and eat again.

Great atmosphere as we sat up outside while it was raining but we were nice and toasty with outside small heaters. The burgers were terrific! Plan on returning the next time we are in town.

This place is really cool. We loved the decor and atmosphere. They have a large selection of drinks and the burgers were simply mouth-watering. Great service, as well.

We loved this place. The hamburgers are incredible. The setting was nice. We ate inside but we could see the beautiful setting outside. We celebrated my step son’s birthday and they made it special.

Glad to see that this restaurant was open on a Sunday as few are in downtown (especially during this COVID season). We had the option to dine in or out. We started with some beer and a moonshine flight...yep that’s right, good ole fashioned moonshine!...Grapefruit was my favorite. We ordered the Buffalo Cauliflower Bites and they were tasty. Lightly fried but not light on flavor. Our main entree were the burgers. My husband ordered Port Wine Blue Cheese without a bun and instead on a bed of greens. I ordered the turkey burger. This place does not skimp on meat! Both were delicious. The food along with the excellent service has guaranteed that we will be back!More

A great local restaurant. Burgers are out of this world, and the top five burgers I've had across the nation. The cocktails are amazing as well. Do not pass the buffalo cauliflower bites up. They will blow your mind.

What a great place! Very lively when we were there. The blue cheese burger I had along with a bourbon tasting flight was excellent. Highly recommended!

Amazing meal! The tuna sandwich was out of this world! Plus the portobello burger was tasty and cooked perfect. Elk burger very tasty. Recommend the sweet potato fries. Our waitress suggested some honey with them and boy was she right! Beer selection wonderful. Flights are...available! Place was packed but we were seated working 15 minutes as host told us. Nice place with nice workers!!More

I was so sad to discover that they took away the old turkey burger. I will not be coming back until they bring it back. The menu is very different.

Bailey, thanks so much for the feedback on our recent visit. We are always listening to our guests. Our hope is that you will return to try a few other items off of the menu to find a new favorite item.

Stopped here on a Saturday night for a quick bite to eat, was very crowded but we didn't have to wait. The atmosphere here is great, the service was perfect and loved the food. Will definitely come back again.
