Burgers were excellent! Alcoholic drinks were a bit high priced but beer was normal price. I had Asian burger and husband Swiss cheese and onions on his. They were done to perfection we will return as we love sitting outside on the rooftop bar.

Day trip from Chicago to visit a winery then stopped here for lunch, long wait but totally worth it. Sit upstairs on the open air deck if you can! Drinks were very good, burgers and grilled cheese were delicious. Views overlooking the harbor, friendly service...More
