“Mediocre”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Food was bland, service was average. Wait staff was pleasant while the hostess was apathetic.
Music did not match the ambiance. We listened to music that should have been playing in a club while sitting in Bob Evans type restaurant. It just didn't mesh. I will try the fare again, maybe for brunch. I would have gone again today, but could not persuade my SO. It would be great to have better choices for dining in this area.

“Excellent Restaurant food, Pub Fare and Services”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We held a birthday celebration for 20 for our out of town guests for a wedding weekend and had a fabulous time! Justin had everything all ready for us to party. We came back the next two nights to enjoy the pub and drinks and service again were excellent. Scott you were great! Thanks! We are lucky to be 20 minutes away, so we will be back!

“Nice Sunday brunch menu!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled upon this great little cafe on our road trip. So much nicer than the chain restaurants we were considering. Ate out in the patio and enjoyed a relaxed, slow meal with some nice background music. Good thing we were not in a rush bc our food took forever to come out. Food was very good though and we really enjoyed our time here. Waitress was pleasant and restrooms were nice and clean.

“Nice addition to the area!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

For those that live in the area we are desperate for new restaurants. This one is a nice addition! Much more upscale than the previous Bungalo Ale House. The buffalo wings are the best in town in my opinion! Not drenched in sauce with a nice flavor that's different from your typical buffalo wing. Ribs are also flavorful as is the steaks. The salads could use a bit more "goodies" or all the extra stuff besides lettuce. Service is friendly and attentive but on a busy night can get slow. Bar beverages have a nice selection. The strawberry Cosmo is sweet but yummy! We will definitely go back!

“Pricey but delicious”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

The food was delicious. I had a NY Strip that was cooked to perfection. Absolutely fantastic. The staff was very friendly and very attentive (but not too much so). They also have a great variety of beers on tap. If it wasn't so pricey it would be 5 stars.
