This venue has changed hands since my last visit and now has a terrific variety of beers on tap that you normally wouldn't expect. Beer is cold, food is good - what more can one say?

Burgers are delicious, however time between first burger to last was 25 minutes( total of five burgers). Very long wait and entree came out after main meal. Good atmosphere, great drinks however food needs to be served quicker.

The environment is pleasant and the staff are friendly. We ordered the King Kong burger, old school cheese burger and nachos. The burgers were enjoyed however, the nachos we bland and the mince had the consistency of baby food. I would not order these again...More
