Not your typical dive. Atmosphere was comfortable and warm and clean. Not many beers on tap, maybe 4 or 5 max. But the one I had was terrific (Red Jacket Amber Ale). We arrived too late for food since the grill closes at 10pm, but we requested a menu and they have a ton of choices, so we will definitely... More

We had lunch here and couldn't have been happier. They had dollar drafts and king sized sliders that were great. Their wings came in several flavors. This isn't a family stop but for a hungry couple interested good food, good service, and a couple beers, it was perfect.

This place was great. The bartenders and owner were social and very nice. Kurt came out and talked to us for an hour. Abby was great behind the bar. Brisket was great and beer was priced well. I would recommend friends and family to check this place out.

What an awesome place catmando's is (now) for food. They have a new manager and cook for the grill and what an improvement. Ray (not sure of the last name) is a trained chef and it shows in the menu items, specials, and quality of the food. The shrimp in a bag special on Tuesdays is excellent. The sliders, wings,...
