Great small town local bar and grill. The atmosphere is casual and the waitress/bartender friendly. The burgers are juicy and tasty but skip the macaroni and cheese. There is a dining room of the bar area as well.

I had the best pizza burger of my life. It's mostly bar food but lots on the menu. I normally eat healthy but this was a great indulgence.
