We stopped here just for drinks and loved it. The food menu looked good but we had already eaten. A huge beer selection including a great cider/fruit beer selection which I loved. The staff was friendly and good music. Will return!

The food is higher end pub food but the star here is their beer list. It's huge and constantly changing. Seating is nice and there are tvs to watch sports, for example. It's a good place for couples or a night out with friends.

The good was good but nothing to write home about. Service was very good, helpful and friendly. The fried fish was greasy and the cole slaw didn't taste very good. The rest of the food was good.

Ate here today for the second time and had an exceptional dinner. The Cubans, black forest turkey and cheese curds were great. The service was timely and friendly.
