Crowded and energetic in the center of Clarkston with great food and original drinks. Excellent mac n cheese tops a great array of sides, and the main dishes from brisket to dark meat chicken are all consistently delicious.

It is nice to indulge in a guilty pleasure every once in a while. Wait times are never as long as they say. 2nd story has a nice variety of seated areas to talk while you wait for your table.

For the past few years we have made it to the Woodshop for our anniversary dinner. We are more into "fun" than "stuffy" for our anniversary these days, so it's always a fun spot! It's also Cinco de Mayo, so we always get there right...More

We are looking for a place to host a large rehearsal dinner, maybe 45 people or so. Do they have room for that?
