For some reason this is coming up as an attraction instead of a great burger/beer/whiskey bar in Raleigh. Though very busy, we were able to get in and get served quickly and without being rushed. Great food and service! First rate for a relaxing meal!

The service was really slow and we went late so there were only three tables that had customers including our own. We sat outside. The waitress was very attentive and she replenished our drinks, so the delay was with the kitchen.

Great sports bar with very good food. The burgers are varied, but all quite good. Nice atmosphere too. We took at group of seven here and had no trouble seating everyone together.
