This is a local bar. We decided to try their fish fry. The fish comes broiled or fried. The serving size was adequate and it includes coleslaw, fries and macaroni and cheese. The food here was good, the atmosphere was lacking.

All the food is great! They have a great fish fry along with a great chef salad. The portions are huge. I could have eaten my salad for 3 days. Good atmosphere.
