The interior is the same with the long oak bar and lots of booths. Nice meal before a late ballgame. The burger was perfect. They went a little crazy with the steak fries...they were so huge you had to cut them up to eat them....More

Had the Burger and the flight of deviled eggs. Who knew deviled eggs could be so good. The burger was outstanding and among the best ones I've ever eaten. I will definitely go back.

The drinks are sensational with a varied selection! The deviled eggs and Elvis on horseback are a delight, by the snapper, I would not recommend--not fresh OR delicious. The fries can substitute a meal, they're so good! Great location for a fun night out.

We got here right at opening to sit at the bar and grab a drink. As a bonus, we got to watch the Belmont Stakes! The bartenders were very nice and educated enough to teach two novices about bourbon. We ended up getting a few...More
