I ordered corned beef and cabbage for lunch on St Patrick's Day. It was " the best" entree ever!! My husband enjoyed the Reuben that he ordered. Although the menu was fantastic, I found the restaurant to lack warmth. The restroom had an offensive odor and was under repair. The service was good, but slow.

Always a fun time if you go to just hang out with friends. Food is always good but service is always slow. Especially at lunchtime.

I think our waiter was looking for his spaceship. When we got our food we had no silverware or napkins. Our... More

This is a good place for groups. Sometimes it can get a little loud if your only going to eat with 2 or 4 people. It's better for groups.

This is a drink only joint. They ran out of lettuce, the food was atrocious. The service was the worst. They had nothing going. It seemed that the only people enjoying the place were drinking very heavily. We ordered three different items and they did not have the ingredients to complete the three. when we finally landed some menu items... More

They have a big enough area to have a family gathering. Food and drink - we tried the Indiana... More

Went with my sons to eat there tonight. Sat in the dinner area and got bombarded with f bombs and vulgarity from the bar. As I looked over to see where this was coming from I surprised to see a group of adults with merrilville high school shirts on. After listening to the rest of their conversation I gathered they...

When there on Sunday for Bears They have a blood mary bar which is unique and excellent. Fiid is good. They have a number of craft beers on tap. Bartenders are very knowledgeable about them and give free samples. Good place to go
