“Great beer selection and really good food! What else do you want?”
Reviewed July 12, 2012 via mobile

Stumbled in after work and tried the ahi tuna and a rye beer or two... The beer was good, the food was fresh and full of flavor, and the service at the bar was great, thanks to Rachelle. Prices were very reasonable in a town of overpriced restaurants. I'll be back when I'm in town again.

“Pretty good, nothing spectacular.”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

There is a really large beer menu. The waiter was pretty knowledgeable of the menu. I had the prime burger and fries, it was pretty good. Atmosphere was good.

“Very nice and food is good - for work lunch.”
Reviewed September 23, 2011

I enjoyed going here for lunch. The menu was good with enough of a twist to be different. I had a burger with an egg on it. The waitstaff appeared to have so type of flare requirement. One had like orange hair, another had feather earrings, etc. It didnt take away from anything. The only thing I didn't like was that the food took a while to come out and it came out in pieces. There was 5 of us and it came 2 at a time. Our waiter had to be flagged down a few times by my coworker for a refill on ice tea. I am typically a lot less demanding during lunch with co workers but did notice enough minor issues to prevent it from being an excellent place in my book.
