They have a coconut water mojito and it is to die for. Super refreshing and smooth. I don’t even like mojito’s but this one, has to be the best.

They have a pretty big bar, lots of TVs for watching games. I had the green chili and it was very tasty. I had a salad, they make their own dressings. The basolmic vinegar was absolutely great.

The restaurant was cooking for a Friday night. The acoustics of the room are old school and the noise level was not meant for conversation. The beer menu was varied and the brews good . Typical bar food. Check it out.
