I frequent this place often with a number of my cronies. The crowd is rather quite nice , reminds me a little of the bar in the movie "Star Wars”. Quite the eclectic mix ,some of the regulars do get a little rowdy though, certainly the beer pong crew. Food can be savory, although stay away from the chickens feet and frog legs.
Bartending service is above par although the older gentleman has tendency to move slowly and can be somewhat surly on certain days.
The permittee has done good job there but seems to imbibe a little too much during work.
Overall I would give it a big cheery thumbs up!

Wonderful service in a bar kinda like Cheers from the old days - everyone knows your name, bartenders are fast, efficient and very friendly. Bands on Saturday night during summer, love the patio, water feature - plenty to do, or just hang out and soak up some rays. Inside is clean and Kyle can sure make a mean patty melt. Rich is owner and you would not know it as very approachable. Love coming to see John behind the bar for his quick wit. I've been coming just over two years and completely consistent on all levels.

This is a quaint little place and is awesome in the warm weather months since they have a great patio. They are also smoker friendly outside, which is good for those of us who like to exercise our right light up outside. The burgers are good and you have to try the chilli with a cold draft on a cold sunday afternoon while watching the game. Service is okay but it is a little whole in the wall so don't expect white glove service but it is attentive. What do you expect for place where you can have a burger and a couple beers with tip for less than $25.

It is the place to go where they know your name. This is a classic neighborhood tavern. Go there a few times, and you'll be part of the family. The food is their secret: Russ is an amazing cook.
