Atmosphere is not that great, it's kind of cafeteria like to me. The food quality was not very good especially for the prices they charge. Drinks were okay though not great. Maybe they are a sports bar?? Anyway I don't think we will be back,...More

This place has a nice "up north" feel and service with a smile. The food is fine but not extraordinary but the place has a nice home town feel to it. The bar is well stocked and all in all a happy place.

We ate here with another family, including kids. We all got burgers. The burgers were good. Nice atmosphere, tv's if you want to watch a game. Overall a nice place to eat.

Food was amazing, but our server was awful! Very rude, made us feel like we were an annoyance. He sat at another table visiting and biting his nails instead of asking if we needed refills on drinks. Very poor service. Disappointing.

My fresh fried tortilla chips and salsa were fresh out of the bag but that's ok. The bar is clean, lovely fireplace. Friendly faces, good mix of bar and restaurant dining. Give it a try!
