Been in a few times now, once for brunch, once for a Saturday happy hour and once for dinner.
First the brunch... it was fairly quiet on a Sunday morning. This was our first visit. Service was a little slow but it appeared that one server had all the tables at that time. Food was good but I think it sat a little too long as it wasn't much more than warm when it got to the table.
Saturday happy hour brought a different experience. Again it was a little quiet at 4:15pm. Service was excellent, great recommendations on the happy hour food and great selection of draft beers and other drinks. Enjoyed the "beer of the day" which was Killkenny's for $2.50 a pint. Guacamole and plantain chips was excellent. Fresh made!!
Dinner on a Sunday evening coupled with their all day happy hour was also great. Enjoyed a couple of theirs sliders, deviled eggs and of course the guacamole. The four entrees were just as good. Rueben is apparently one of their famous meals... good but I wouldn't say outstanding. Fish and chips were excellent as was the dinner ceasar salad and slider plate.
Overall a nice spot, family owned, good service (at least we had), great food. I'm sure it gets much busier later in the evenings but the couple of time we have been there in the afternoon seemed pretty quiet and low keyed. Looking forward to warmer weather to enjoy their outdoor patio!!

We had a nice brunch here, I was a little disappointed in the service, but it was really busy and it was not that bad, just a little slow. To her defense she had a very large table that wanted separate checks, but there seemed to be a lot of manager standing around that could have helped her out. That being said, the bloody mary was fantastic and my corn beef hash was nice right, homemade for sure. Very good brunch.

I have eaten here several times, the food is always good. Happy hour has good deals, I highly recommend the guacamole with plantain chips. The brunch on Sundays is worth a visit as well, chicken and waffles are very tasty and they have bottomless mimosas!

Let me first start off by saying that the place is not the same if June is not working. She is so attentive and everything always runs smoothly. The AGM on the other hand (if that's her title) prefers to sit at the bar, flirt with regulars, and ignore any issues that other tables may be having.

We went for happy hour to our favorite local place and service was great in the beginning. Ordered some drinks and some apps and were hanging out. 30 minutes later, Amanda comes by and recognizes us and checks on us. We let her know we wanted to order dinner but hadn't seen our waitress in a while. We did take a while to order so we understood. She said she would take care of it and apologized.

After blatantly talking to our server about it at the bar, the server comes up and apologizes. She didn't know we wanted dinner. She was attentive until we were done and asked for a last drink. It then took 20 minutes for anyone to come by so we could get the check and the correct beer that was being drank all night. Meanwhile we are getting the stink eye by the AGM and we clearly feel unwelcome. Even Amanda stopped coming by. Maybe she was instructed to?

Long story short, we will only come back if we know June is running the show and making sure her staff is in tip top shape. Oh, and nice job to the entire staff openly drinking in front of customers. Perks of being family owned I guess. Next time make sure customers are taken care of first, otherwise we wouldn't mind.
