Always have liked all the regular menu items as well as the specials but they have changed! The lamb burger was my favorite- it is gone! Lobster rolls are everything but they are gone. Even the tater tots were off- bitter and mushy. The burger...More

I got the Clemson with a lettuce wrap. The Pattie was hand formed and the bacon crispy. You can also get sweet potato fries instead of regular fries. Amazing!!!

This place has delicious burgers! The atmosphere is great, as well. I really enjoyed the option of having vegetables instead of fries. Highly recommend!

Lots of choices for burgers and sandwiches. They now have GF buns, which is great, but they should toast or grill them. They aim to please, so have it your way. Order at counter, pick up when ready and eat. Bus your own table.
