Nice place to go. It appears to a bar from the outside but once inside it's more of restaurant style layout. Personally I was wanting a bar. You have to wait to he seated. The food was good served hot and fresh. The menu was adequate. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. It was a good experience for a restaurant not so much of a bar and grille however

It was alright. I picked this place out for a family dinner as it has a good amount of TVs, and one of our family members wanted to watch a specific game. It also looked like they had a good selection of brew based on the pictures. They were able to put the game on, but they did not have the selection of beer being advertised on their google page. Service was kind of slow too. Our waitress was nice, but she was moving so quick I barely had time to ask for stuff. Food was good though. I had the sausage sandwich. You get a decent amount for what you pay.

Ate and drank at the bar. Couldn't find a beer menu. When one was given to me it was not updated. I did not receive the beer I ordered. I ordered the gizzards. I was not given silverware nor were the gizzards cut into bite sized peices. By the time they had cooled to a temperature where I could bite through them without burning my mouth the breading had turned into a mushy and soggy mess.

Stopped in for lunch during a weekday. The food was alright, but nothing special - pretty basic menu. They have pretty good fries, so there's that.

Great service and had a yummy crispy cheese stick appetizer! Looks clean and nice large televisions to watch the game.
