The beer is good with lots of choices. The fried pickles appetizer was good. The pretzel crusted chicken entrée is HUGE!! Way to much food for just one person. Waitress was nice.

We ordered carryout after a visit for lunch. The menu has a lot of options and everything was good. It sits in a busy location if you like crowds.
