“Good Sports Bar/Food”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Not fine dining, but my favorite sports bars. They have the right combination of food, bar, and TVs for viewing along with good service. None perfect, but all certainly above average. Great salads and home made potato chips.

“YUMMY!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Had not been here so this was our first time. Neighbors said to try it. Very, very pleased. We all got a different dish and tried out each. Every one was pleased.

“Cold”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

The food we had was just average for this sort of restaurant , the main reason we would not return was that the the dining room was far too cold. A number of diners were putting jackets and sweaters on during our visit. Just not comfortable for dining

“Friday Lunch”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Went with a co-worker for lunch. Years ago, they had a steak burrito- which I remember fondly. They took it off the menu. My server- Molly said they could do something similar - it was a couple dollar up charge. It was excellent, this place makes a killer steak burrito- get it blackened. This is not a small plate, comes with a full helping of beans and rice. Service was great, returned twice to refill my drinks- perfect timing. Will return.
