I love the outdoor seating. The atmosphere is lively and food is good. I had a great burger and the salads are very good.

Racks is a pretty free swinging bar/restaurant that leans more towards the bar side aft 6pm. The service was great and the food pretty good overall. If you have kids though, get there early or they may learn a few social skills you may not want them to! But hey, it's a bar! They treated us well and ex would go back.

Really good food with lots of garlic, a Basque tradition. Chorizo, big burgers, lots of homemade breads. Be ready to wait for service if its busy, this is definitely a bar first and a grill second. And be wary, grill closes at 8 (seriously? They should consider a late night menu for bar snacks). This is the place I go when my uncle and I want to sit down, grab a bite, get a couple drinks, and talk over a long two hour lunch. Though, purely personal, I hate the hunting motif.

My wife and I ate on the patio behind he restaurant. Food and service were very good, and reasonably priced. It's a beer joint so the wine choices were very limited. But the one I had as fine. I had salmon, my wife had a salad. Both were good.

After reading the reviews on TA we were looking forward to a juicy hamburger, a great salad and cold beer. Not. The hamburger patty was thin and dry (frozen?). The salad was ho-hum with mediocre bottled dressing. Beer was cold and good enjoyed on pleasant patio on a warm evening. Sad to say we can't agree with the other reviews that give this spot an "A" for effort. A little extra effort and it could be simply wonderful in a town sadly lacking.
