We have been here many time and prefer, by far, to sit in the bar/lounge area. Very warm and comfortable. If the weather is nice the outdoor seating is wonderful. Great menu, good beer selection, very good food and service. It's a go to place.

Visited here for the all you can eat ribs on a Monday evening. Dinner rolls were fresh and warm, and they had a good beer selection. Unfortunately the ribs were pretty average, but okay considering the price

The food was average enough - although we don't think the perch was worth a $22 price tag, but the other items (burrito, salad, sandwich) were fine enough. However the true damper on our experience was the poor service and overall unpleasant experience. Upon asking...More
