Older 80s decor. Several pool tables. Nicer bar area. I've heard it's a great place for a steak, but haven't tried it yet.

Yes, it looks a little iffy from the outside, but honestly it's a nice little bar & grill. Several beers on draft (domestic and craft). Prices were great and service was outstanding. If staying at one of the nearby hotels, I would give this place a shot.

In town for regional soccer tournament and stumbled upon this gem by searching what was near our hotel using tripadvisor and Yelp. So happy we found it. First thing, you must be 21 to enter so no kids. This was surprising to us as it has a full menu. Not sure why kids can't come until a certain time. We... More

Stopped in for some beers while watching this year's home run derby, tried a black & blue burger, the German pretzels, and a few beers. They had a nice selections of beers and the staff implied that they rotate them every few weeks or so. I was impressed that the burger I ordered was a hand-made patty and not some... More

This is the best hole in the wall we have found yet on our little travels. Guy Fieri you have to stop at this place. Best Pork Tenderloin I have ever had (yes my family even better than Iowa!) Appetizers were great too - try the mushrooms or the deep fried pickles!!!

I've been coming here at least once a month for over 10 years now. I keep coming back because the food is good, pricing is in line, and the staff take care of you. I get the tripple decker club most times, but the specials are always good.
