Decent draft selection and the burgers are really good! The burger was juicy and the Bun was soft and warm. I would return.

If you want a great variety of burgers and beers then you've got to eat here. Large portions and frosty beverages are worth the price. Peanut butter on your burger? Yup, you should try it once. Everything is made fresh and fast.

Best place for burgers and beer in GF area. Great service and excellent food. The staff know their beers! Any questions about the different varieties were answered with a smile. The burgers are cooked perfectly, with excellent fries.

Recommended by a staff member at the hotel we stayed at. The burgers were wonderful even though we had to order to go due to having teenagers with us!

I always order the Rajun Cajun burger with chips and the beer cheese dip. The burger has pepperjack cheese, cajun lime sauce, grilled onions and cajun seasoning. The chips are thinly sliced in-house and arrive to the table hot and crunchy. The beer cheese dip...More
