The bar/restaurant is located between the Central Market and the Prince Street parking garage, so very convenient.

Tables were crowded about 5:15 p.m. on a Friday, but glad we got a seat. We both ordered burgers, which were less than $6 and tasted fabulous! The great waitress recommended the potato salad and it was delicious! The macaroni salad was oddly flavored. Seemed to be a great selection of Pa. beers.

The bar itself has lots of charm: tin ceiling tiles, old-fashioned wallpaper, caberet-style chairs, dark wood, etc.

The food was good but not great. The service was good, but not great. The menu variety was good. The decor was a bit odd and it's a bit cramped but it is right next to the Central Market and I guess that's what the draw is. Eat here or don't. It's not a destination unto itself.

You know that Sienfeld episode where they want a restaurant that has every type of foods on the menu? Well, this is it. They have burgers, burritos, stir-fry, seafood, you name it. I didn't get the feeling that they were fantastic at anything, but they were good at everything we ordered. The food was fresh and tasty and the prices were very reasonable.

I felt like I was in CHEERS, great lunch menu & prices. The waitress was really nice too. I can't wait to go back there again on my next trip to Lancaster. Very close to shopping also.
