“Good local place to meet friends”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Great place to meet friends and unwind. Great bar food and drinks. Bartender aims to please and welcomes special requests both with food and beverages. Had a super super salad there last week. Fried dough, seafood and Dolly Salad recommended.

“Smells like lestoil and lysol, and not in a good way.”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Years ago this little gem was a must. Now it's a must avoid.The food is inconsistent. The bartender lacks courtesy, and has no problem standing and talking with others whild you wait, and wait, and wait. It use to serve exceptional food, now it's good for a beer and some free app's.

“Smelly”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We came in, it was smelly (a bad smell...) and there seemed to have no staff anywhere.
We got out without even sitting...

I can't say anything about the food.

“Never again!!!!!!”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Last night there were 16 of us who met for dinner here. We had the one and only waitress in the building taking care of our table and she turned out to also be the cook & dishwasher. As there were precious few other diners in the restaurant we did have all of her attention. I have to say she did her best under the circumstances but the service was sketchy at best. Most of us had finished our entrees when the sides were delivered and one of our group had not even received her meal until we had all finished and after such a long wait received the wrong meal. I guess the owners don't care too much about return business because I know of 16 who will never be back.
