Sunday only, try there crispy eggs and corned beef hash plate, along with their Bloody Mary Bar! Huge horse shaped bar, friendly staff, great prices. In summer (or warm weather) sit out side! Ask for Manny, or Antonio, tell them you want the best table!

We stopped here for a few beers and dinner. We were quite impressed with the atmosphere as the restaurant is very spacious, the bar is huge, and everything is clean and modern. We both had their “Big Ale Prime Burger" which was very good but a bit pricey. The Countyline Tavern has a huge list of beers, whiskeys, and Scotches... More

My work team went there for a lunch and it was quite nice. Nothing special (to be honest I liked the darker interior of the prior restraunts that was located there before the remodel), bright and sunny. It was a bit too average for my taste and prices were a bit too high for the lunch specials. I guess it... More

Stoped by for a quick dinner. Found food ok and a bit expensive. Good selection of beers and had a busy bar business. Lot of wood and hard surfaces so it is loud. Overall ok.

I was impressed with the variety and selections on the menu. Very interesting and new collaborations. I had the short ribs with wild mushroom sauce stroganoff. What awesome flavor and plenty of meat. I also tried a side of fried Brussel sprouts. My boyfriend had the daily special of Baja sea bass. All were well prepared fresh and presented nicely.... More

Love the remodel of this property. The bar area is especially nice with many screens & high top tables. The food is good, but I'd like to see some "basic" menu items. They have tried to be a bit too creative for my taste. A little on the pricey side for the area.

Wife and I were looking for a place with good bar food, and decided to give this place a shot since the reviews were decent. We arrived about 5:00 on a recent Saturday afternoon. The place was pretty empty, and we grabbed a seat at the bar, ordered a couple beers and the calamari. It came out in about 2... More
