The atmosphere here is pretty chill and laid back. We had a back room to ourselves, which was nice since we have four children. The food was pretty good as well. The kids really enjoyed their Mac-n-Cheese.

This is a hidden gem of a restaurant. We had a burger and a gutbuster sandwich. The burger was juicy and very much homemade. The sandwich was grilled ham, gouda cheese, pineapple on grilled rye. The spicy corn fritters were quite tasty. Will definitely return.
