They have a decent menu, typical bar food. Nothing to write home about. It is an open atmosphere so very loud if they are busy. If you are just looking for some drinks and food while meeting up with friends, Lazy Oaf will certainly meet...More

Bar with good food, service and price. Not huge it's a local bar but clean and great atmosphere. Lots of tea to watch a game on.

The burgers are the reason to visit. Large portions with great sides! The pizza and fish fry are also excellent suggestions. A full service bar usually has a crowd at all times of the day. There are food and drink specials every day.

Food was fair. Price was high for what you get. Clean and waitress was very good. I would not recommend this place although I was not completely unhappy with it. I can go other places get better food at the price they charge.

Surprised by negative reviews. We've been there twice now and have been really happy with our food and the service. Vegetarian options at a sports bar menu Fantastic! Yes, busy but attentive to us! Try it out for yourself sometime.

Great, upscale bar food. Delicious pizza made with local crust in a stone fire oven. Patio is wonderful in the summer. Great nightly specials on drinks. Happy hour specials.
