Good appetizer menu.....the bases loaded burger was awesome! Try the watermelon beer! Not much watermelon flavor at all but it was a great lighter beer. Good beer menu in general!

Not much good I can say - one guy by the bar, kinda frustrated and over-worked due to the crowd around the bar. Shame the management couldn't staff the bar better! Food was below average and even the fries were horrible! My friend had scotch,...More
