This place can reek of cigarette smoke if one sits at the bar, but the food is quite good and the portions are generous. I prefer going during the lunch or any time of day other than the evening...that is when it gets crowded and rowdy. They have monthly specials on different sandwiches and daily specials for lunch entrees. Overall,... More

I visited this place with friends and will not be back. It's nothing more than a smoke filled dirty bar. The service was ok but the food was horrible. The wings were cold and I think we're cooked the day before. Rather rough crowd frequents this place as well so go early if you want to try.

This place, Although just a basic Bar & Grill has a lot to offer. The Beers are cold, The service is great and the Hot Wings are perfect. There's pool tables, Bar games and Dart boards. The atmosphere is a little hard to take if your a non smoker like me. I can only stay in there so long because... More

I just left this place not even 30 minutes ago. When I walked in it smelled of heavy smoke from the attached bar! There was no one there to greet me, I stood there for about 5 minutes before any one came out. When the woman came out she acted like she was not pleased to see me, I asked... More

Worked in Va. for a year and a half...this was one of our favorite hangouts. The food was always good, service was fast and friendly. Bar prices were good and just a fun place to hangout. Shannon was one of the bartenders there and such a hoot to be around. We stop in each time we get back in the... More
