We stopped in for a quick drink as we are staying not far from here. The staff were friendly. It was a Friday night and the locals were just hanging out. Very nice establishment.

We loved the dinner. Service was excellent. Beer selection is great. Wings were magnificent. Large, juicy, crispy. Try the maple wings! Prime rib was also very good and steak tips are always excellent. Enjoy this place.
