Recently stopped by with a group out for a motorcycle ride. Beer was cold and the appetizers were hot and delicious. Great food served throughout the week and weekend.

Met this past week with friends that I had not connected with for quite some time. We enjoyed the quietness of the lunch hour, plus the ability to sit and visit without constant interruptions. Food was good, waitress very pleasant, understood we just wanted to visit without being rushed.

This is a great place to eat and have a drink. I have never eaten anything I didn't like. I would recommend the Bourbon Street wings and the cheese curds are the best I have had outside of Wisconsin.

My mom and I went in here for their Wed. night tacos, which she has had before and wanted me to try. It turned out to be a very nice atmosphere for two people, or a family, which is surprising since it is more of a tavern. It's one huge room with natural wood floors, and old gold, metal ceilings....

We were staying overnight in town and went to the closest place that had food and beer. We almost passed because of the exterior, but are SO HAPPY we didn't!!!! The interior is huge and we loved the wood floors, walls, and general atmosphere. There were several other families there and the staff was exceptionally friendly. Most importantly, the food...

From the outside this place looks like like a simple locals bar on Main St. And it is, but so much more. The interior space is two or three times the size you expect it to be plus a back porch patio overlooking a rear parking lot. Inside is a comfy casual atmosphere with generous drinks and the best bar... More

Stopped by this little gem when nothing else was open. I was very pleasantly surprised by the nice inside dining area and the wonderful patio dining area. The food was good and the service was wonderful. The waitresses were friendly and welcoming! Defintely on my list of places to visit again!
