I visited with a group on a Friday night and it was very crowded. The service was pretty good, and the wings were great! It's a loud place with people watching sports. Good selection of beer. Good place for people watching.

Here at the WN, around 4:30, before the crowds. The city of Hillsborough is in the process of wishing the sidewalks. The sidewalk in front of the WN is complete and double the size of the outdoor seating. Excellent! This service is superb right now...More

I had heard good things about this eatery and it did not disappoint. It is small in size, but big in atmosphere and food. We had seven for dinner and the variety was perfect for every taste. A good value and delicious food.

Unless they have a secret room I do not know about, there would be no way to handle a group that large.
