Great place to gather with friends or family. Food is good and easy on the wallet. Great patio and entertainment schedule in summer. Lots of music, local bands and some are really good!

i've been here several times for lunch and it is very good, the specials are sandwiches and they have a good selection to chose from. This is a Bar but I have seen kids in here with their parents. The staff is polite and the service is good, prices are reasonable.

Turned in to have a quick bite outside. Inside is 1970 - outside is ok - or should I say good. They have about 12 tables outside in relatively nice set up. Food was good.

The Bartenders are great here fun and can make just about anything. Bar has $1.00 tap beers and a full menu. The owners are hands on and are super great!! The patio is open in the summer and they have live music on Sundays great place to sit back & enjoy your day.
