Not a fancy play, but super friendly with great service. The table and dining is basic but the food was very good and quite reasonable. The draught beer selection was also solid. We really enjoyed our night out here.

Great blues band! Feels like we're in Memphis. Enjoying a lager and the pretzel bites app with beer cheese dip.
