“Typical Bar Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Typical bar food. It's okay. If you want to be loud, this is the place to go. They have great happy hour specials though and their appetizers are really good.

“Great burgers and salad bar too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I'm a local and if you're looking for the best burger in town this is the place. Awesome happy hour with 2-for-1s and 1/2 price apps.Also has one of the few salad bars in town and always 3 choices of soup. reasonably priced and portions are big.Can't go wrong here.

“Food is good but some employees are very inconciderate!!!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

My fiance stopped there on sat 8-18-12 she was there for her batchelorette party. She just got done doing a shot and ran to the bathroom to throw up. So a little later she was going to go the the bathroom again but there was a line a 2 employees that were there after thier shift started making fake gagging noises and said "oh do u need a bucket" in a very sarcastic tone. and kept making fun of her wile she waited. I am discusted at this it totally ruined her night and she called me to pick her up and came out crying. Seriously it was her batchlorette party this is totally unacceptable. The person in charge that night was told about it and totally blew it off. In normall circumstances u only have one batchlorette party and she will have to remember it ending like this for the rest of her life. NOT COOL!!!!

“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Awesome nightly specials! Tuesday's Burgers and Beer special was delicious...choice of many delicious varieties of half pound burgers, fries and a 40 oz draft beer, such a deal. The regular menu is fantastic. We will definitely be back!

“Not bad!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Stopped for lunch with a crew of 7. We had the best waiter who was quick to wait on us. Menu is pretty typical bar food but with quite a variety! It was nice to have a lunch menu to select from as well.as the regular menu. Great burgers. Good prices.
