Great food. Try the brunch or taco Tuesdays. The decor isn't the best but the service is great. Very fun with friends or to meet new people.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

This place is tucked away off water street. Doesn't have the best decor but great fare. The brunch is definitely worth a try along with taco Tuesdays. Great service too.

A cup of chili KC's way comes over toast with shredded cheddar and Sour cream! And it's fantastic chili!

“Great Apps/Great Service”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We stopped on our way to Summerfest (just down the street from the Ramada on Michigan) and decided to try some apps/beers. Great service and the ahi tuna appetizer was excellent and we LOVED the chips w/blue cheese. Hubby had rib appetizer, not so great. Cute place, lots of atmosphere and our waitress was on top of things. Recommend.

“Looks are decieving!”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

We stopped here after a brewery tour. It's nothing to write home about as far as looks but the menu has some good bar food selections. We ordered the haystack onion strings to start and they are so darn good! It was a huge plate and more than the 2 of us could finish and still eat our sandwiches.I had an Angus cheeseburger and it was cooked perfecty and was tasty and juicy. The fries were good as well. My dining compainion had an bacon, tomato and avocado melt which was delicious. She tried their carrots as a side and didn't really care for them. i thought they were ok but seemed a little bit burnt. Add in a couple cold cocktails and it's even better. At any rate give this place a try if you're in the area. i definitely would go there again!
