I was here for the wings. I might not be an expert but I do like them. They weren’t good. My husband says they are the best but I just don’t agree, he says I should have just tried plain buffalo not garlic parm. My...More

We stop here once a month with the guys from work. Service is always good as well as the food. Plenty of different brews. There is enough room in the back for larger parties. People bring kids and sit in the back.
