“Dark but unique”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Feels like you've stepped into an old library at first. Lots of couches and a couple of fireplaces in addition to the bar and 8 or 9 four-top tables. The walls are lined with old books and vintage signs. Menu is just burgers, salads and sandwiches. Served on paper plates but yummy nonetheless.

“Nice Ambiance but dull food”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

The setting is fantastic, but nothing special about the food or drinks. Dreadfully dull bloody marys. Had a bison burger; decent but soggy fries and not that special.

“Quirky is the term that immediately comes to mind.”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

The place is cramped and can be hard to maneuver as there are so many levels and tables are so close together. The food is good but by no means exceptional and typical bar type food. The burgers are decent but nothing special. We ordered MR, M, & MW and all came out cooked exactly the same and no lettuce or tomato just burger, bacon & cheese, bun. The chili was good and fries were standard issue. Service was ingratiating as if our waiter was simply trying too hard.
Basically your typical close to college dive

“OK if it's not crowded.”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Ate here before the Ga-Ky football game. Very dark inside - so dark that it takes several minutes to get adjusted to where you are. The food was OK. Hamburger was good, as were the fries. Philly cheesesteak not so good. Had to send the lemonade back as it was mostly water. Interesting interior, with couches, fireplace and books lining the walls. Bar with several TV's. Not much room for seating. I would not want to go here if it was crowded - but with a small group it was OK. (There were less than 20 people there when we were there). Waitresses were very friendly. Food was very slow arriving, so allow plenty of time.
