Our group stopped here for Lunch and we were all satisfied. My buffalo chicken salad was just right for lunch. 1/3 pound burger looks yummy. Others were all satisfied with their lunch choices.

really appreciated the stop here as I needed to eat and participate in a conf call. Good chicken sandwich made better by the manager trying to accommodate my call while also taking care of several large parties. I will stop here again

You would think by the name that the beer selection would be the draw but their food is the best part about this little place. Can be crowded some nights but worth it. Great owner who will calways come over and ask how is everything.
