Went there for dinner and shuffle board play. A cozy environment with friendly staff and well prepared food. A nice selection of beer topped it off. We like playing shuffle board and that was a major reason for selecting them. This was the only negative...More

Stopped in with friends for some food and drinks. Really liked all the sandwiches, and especially the wings. The beer menu and drinks were really good. You can get a nice big cold beer here, they don't mess around. Great staff as well!

We have walked by many times, never stopped, until last Sunday. We went for breakfast. Nice menu selections, with lots of "Benedict" style eggs entrees. The bacon is so GOOD. Since it was such a nice day we took advantage of the outdoor seating. Will...More
