“Local Tavern in the old style, with good burgers!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I had a burger and beer here not long ago during lunchtime. It is the typical local tavern with a decent beer selection and a competent kitchen.
Smallish, plain and nothing to write home about, it still does what it does quite well and the locals are fond of it.
Burger and fries were excellent and the waitress was very professional and pleasant.

“Go early and go often !!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have been here many times. The burgers are awesome ! The wings are unbelievable !
I want to stress arriving early ! There are only 5 tables. It is definitely a
bar atmosphere, but I never hesitate to bring the kids. Just go early. It fills up, and the later it gets you have to know people have been imbibing. Be aware. Menu is extensive. If the owner/chef is not there, the menu can be abbreviated. Great football happy hour prices on Sundays.
The bartender is also the waitress, so yes, sometimes service suffers. I just get up and go to the bar and ask.

“Great wings but not feeling the love”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

I stopped in for the famous wings which were excellent. I felt very unwelcomed became I wasn't a regular. Had to ask three times for another drink and extra napkins
If you don't welcome your customers how do you expect them to come back

“Amazing Food”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

This tavern is tucked away under the railroad trestle in Seymour, CT as the name suggests. It is a small bar with a modest seating area, a pool table, juke box and dart area. The restaurant offers American fare: sandwiches, burgers and wings. They offer over 100 varieties of wings in a revolving menu.

The food here is simply amazing. Their burgers and wings are without a doubt THE BEST I have ever tasted. Gourmet food at bar prices. Can't beat it! I would definitely recommend the trip to Seymour to try it! I recommend the garlic burger!
