This is a fun place to hang out with a group of friends. There was 12 of us and we sat upstairs. The service was excellent, and all of us enjoyed our food. My favorite was the Cuban!

We came in on a Thursday night looking for a place to watch the football game and we left with a smile on our face, full bellies and a place to recommend. I asked the bartender what her favorite items on the menu were and she said "pot roast and the mac and cheese". Wholly smokes was she right. Both... More

Great Burgers!!! Cooked to order on a perfectly seasoned grill!!! Had the Mushroom/Swiss burger. Perfect, perfect, perfect!!! It comes with their beer battered French fries which are so so. Also had the fried cheese curds which were very good. Nice, fun environment.

The food wasn't great the food wasn't bad. The service was bad. The young lady at the bar was too worried about socializing with the young guy behind the bar. Again food was just OK.

We were seated in one of the upstair seating areas. Our waitress, Katie, was outstanding. Her cheerful banter was enjoyed by the four of us. The deep fried cheese... More
