The food here is excellent along with the menu choices and prices. We highly recommend the provolone sticks. They were amazing! Some work needs done on the cleanliness as the divider between our both and the one next to us had about an inch of...More

This is a neat place. I really like the atmosphere. The food was good. The service was a little slow, especially since it was after the lunch crowd had left.

Good beer selection (liked the sour ale), enjoyed our appetizer (baked artichoke dip) and cool setting (older downtown building w/ very open setting). Parking was limited (approx 6pm).

Started off with perogies, then a Philly steak sandwich with a side of onion rings. Can I say Delicious? Service was great, did not take long for food to come out. Great atmosphere and friendly staff.

I would go back. The building was cool, had a large mall like store attached to it. We didn't eat, but our neighbors food looked good enough. I was curious to know where the kitchen was though, it wasn't obvious sitting at the bar.
