First visit was a weeknight happy hour. Easily got a table. Service was excellent. Music not too loud. Drinks were good. Had the salmon for dinner and it was delicious. Definitely will return!

Good Bar and burgers. Friendly staff, Servings are ample and the beer selection is great. These guys turned me on to Surley Furious.

I was there during a Happy Hour and found seating to be fast and courteous. Beers were reduced along with appetizers. Had eaten here years ago and had remembered the wings and waffle fries to be top notch so I ordered those...Wings seemed much more...More

We stopped here for dinner and had a great experience. Outstanding beer selection with local brands featured prominently. My husband had a sandwich and I had fish and chips. Portions were HUGE! And tasty. Great service from really nice, knowledgeable staff.
