Saturday night, and is was full. They have a good selection of craft beers both bottles and tap. I had the shepherds pie, it was not that good. The mashed potatoes were runny and not a lot of meat. The waitress/service was just ok.

This bar and grill has good food and drinks. They also have very good popcorn to have with your drinks. In the summer they have some outdoor seating with a view of the lake.

Big place, no waiting for our table. We enjoyed the sports atmosphere and the selection of beer was an interesting feature adding to the ambiance. Shepherd's Pie was delicious.
