“Huge portions!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Loved the fried pickles and onion rings! Portions are huge so plan accordingly. Service is friendly but a bit slow. Decent choices of microbrews on tap. Would go back!

“Getting a little worn around the edges”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

This place has had its ups and downs over the years. I think we are on a downward cycle at the moment. The interior needs to be spruced up. Wall air conditioners seem tacky to me. Oh, and how about fixing wobbly tables to you don't have to be using wads of napkins to level them out.

The food is getting a little worn out too. Sandwiches in general are OK here. Entrees are mostly overpriced. With an entree you don't get bread or a salad that you get at other establishments. Food quality is so so. I used to like the steak fajitas. Now they are just a big lump on grilled onions and beans on a hot plate with dry over cooked tasteless beef. Yuch.

Beer selection is good. The wine selection is very over-priced. Face it folks, I'm not going to spend $35 on a bottle of wine to go with my $9 burger.

Bottom line is this place is OK for your basic burger and beer meal. Beyond that I;m not sure I'd bother.

“Okay Food, Noisy Restaurant”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

The food was average, but the background noise was excessive. You had to speak very loudly to be heard. The acoustics need to be dramatically improved

“Good food, service and atmosphere”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

Ate here last weekend. Group of six had six different entrees and all were very good. Sat outside and enjoyed the evening. Server was terrific and food was served quick and hot.
Reasonably piced and good portions. Had music outside and a nice crowd.
Will definitely eat here again and will suggest to friends looking for a good diner.
