We stop in here with friends for food and drink when riding out this way, but was surprised on Sunday of Hillclimbs, which is probably there busiest day of the year, they almost doubled their beer prices. Unless they drastically raised the price from a couple weeks ago when we were there, it's a shame they had to gouge everybody... More

Had an early dinner today. Service was ok. I ordered the Muffeleta, as I love them. OK, so the description did not mention olives, but I figured that was a given.... Instead of olives, it had a hot pepper relish. OMG. It was a jalapeno pepper relish. 2 hours after the meal and my mouth was still burning. NO olives...... More

This is a small fun restaurant next to the bike path. Had pizza which was quite good. Tasted even better since we had biked 20 miles. Good selection of beer is available.

My Husband has ordered cheeseburgers, wings, etc...and has loved everything. Our only problem here was the one crazy busy Sunday afternoon where they ran out of french fries!!!!! As... More

They had a large patio with restaurant and bar seating. It was clean, had a nice character, and a good breeze. They do allow smoking, however. To start, we had loaded potato skins, which were enormous. My partner and friend had meat lover calzones. I had a grilled chicken hoagie with fries. Portions were large, and the food was really...

We went with another couple on a late afternoon/early evening Saturday. It is in the country, near the river and along a bicycle trail. We arrived and there were probably a dozen motorcycles and 3-4 bicycles parked there. It was a nice day, so we checked out the expansive outdoor patio area, which was nearly full of cyclists, bicyclists and... More

Food was fine. The service was fine. Too much smoke. The music was way too loud for such a small place. Unable to talk to friends.

I must say the food was above average for this type of dining but the service really needs to be focused on. We visited a busy Friday evening and had a nice spot for the 10 of us on the patio. Most of wait staff was not pleasant and at times, not focused/attentive. Salmon tenders were quite yummy - and... More
