“Lots of regulars, thats a good sign”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

We stopped here because we were going by it during the lunch hour. From the outside it does not look like much, even first impression on the inside is a little different with all the tables being mismatched. At first that might seem like a negative but did give this place some character. After sitting down for a few minutes it was clear that this place has a set of regulars that are well known by the staff. That is always a good sign, if locals will come to a place on a regular basis they must do something right.

One of the things they do right is have a great bartender/server. He was busy behind the bar and when he got over to our table apologized for the short wait which really was a short wait. He also talked about our menu choices which was helpful.

The food was nice standard bar food. My eye was drawn right a way to the Juicy Lucy. According to the travel channel this originated in Minnesota and actually has two bars up there that compete with which one is better. I was happy to know I could get a burger of similar style closer to home. For those that don't know a juicy lucy has the cheese in the middle of the burger. This resulted in a very good burger. The fries were not my favorite as they were just little pieces of fries but they were not terrible.

Overall this was a really good experience that was highlighted by great staff and good food.
