We popped in following a wedding rehearsal dinner at the colleges. Everything here is wonderful, great food, great drinks, great friendly service too. Pop in one of these days, you'll enjoy it.

The burgers are very greasy. The service is very mediocre. The food is over-priced. Unless you are drinking a lot of beer, the atmosphere is poor. There are way better, more reasonably priced places to eat within a five minute walk.
