The cheese curds were very good. I had the broiled fish, it was OK, not great. My wife had shrimp and they tasted like the frozen variety you get at Sam's Club. All in all, we've had better.

Heard about this place from some locals. Decided to try it out for a late lunch. Ordered the cheeseburgers and fries. burgers came out on sandwich bread and tasted great. The bar and restaurant aren't all fancy and thats the way we like it.
