“Great bartender, OK food”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

While I wasn't thrilled with the food here, I must give massive kudos to the woman manning the bar. She was sweet, funny, and personable, everything to make a midday drink break enjoyable.

“Hit on some, miss on others”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Stopped here after reading reviews and seeing that there wasn't a wait. Outside seating very nice. Steak salad and fajitas were tasty and plentiful. Wings and burgers were just okay. More pricey than the Lake Front Grille and not as scenic. Worth the stop but maybe just one visit. So many other great choices.

“Fun and friendly”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Fun place to eat (upstairs). Very folksy and friendly. Food is fine (although french fries tasted like the frozen kind--need an upgrade, guys! Next time I'll go with the baked potato!) Sweet and friendly service from new waitress Nicole--You go, girl! We will return!

“Dinner”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

We were just walking in the Main Street looking for Dinner and then heard people in the back and saw this place. The closer we got to it the better it smelled! I had the buffalo wrap my husband had fish tacos and we share lobster bisque. We were both very pleased with our meals. I got a side of guacamole which I wouldn't next time but everything else was very good and exactly what we expected. Server was also very nice.

“Great food and cold beer”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

We stopped here after going to the hall of Fame. Saw it right down the street after we left the Hall. I read a few reviews on line and recognized the name. We went to eat and were very pleased the staff was friendly and the food was very good. Also had a cold beer which was perfect for a hot day. will go back anytime we are in town
