Love everything about this place! Laid back atmosphere, good food, right price! If you are looking for a inexpensive night out with good quality food and service, this is the place! Variety of apps, salads and sandwiches. A few entrees. Great beer selection. Everyone is friendly, servers, bartenders, kitchen staff, fellow patrons.

Have been to dinner here several times - the quesadillas are very good as are the sandwiches. Ended up staying for the karaoke which had a fun crowd. Nice local place to hang out.
