We had a excellent experience at this location. Our server, Jordan was on point, along with the food. We will return.

Went here for lunch while visiting and the food was great, got an excellent pizza and some good beers. I will say that the service was slow, even though hardly anyone else was in the place; although it. might have been because we were there earlier than the locals showed up. Still highly recommend them for food and beer.

Come here and watch a game with the gang and grab some burgers and beers, or bring the family for a casual dinner (and sneak a peek at the game on one of their many big TVs). Weather permitting, there are cornhole boards outside. No surprises in the menu. Affordable and local.

My daughter raved about the food and service, but to be honest, to me it was average. I think in an effort to get our table's food delivered together, my burger and fries sat in the window a bit as the fries were cold and soggy and the burger was lukewarm. Taste-wise, it was acceptable. It was a Saturday night... More

This is your standard pub menu with burgers, wings, pizza, etc. The Pub Burger is HUGE! Great service and the food is good. Average about $10.00 per person.

this bar/restaurant is the best. Where else can you go on a Sunday to watch any game of football you want. It was fantastic and the beer specials and choices are great.

First time visit here for lunch...BBQ Sandwich/fries for me and chicken salad for wife. Food was very good...service from either a new or non caring server was so-so.
