Best place for burgers and beer in GF area. Great service and excellent food. The staff know their beers! Any questions about the different varieties were answered with a smile. The burgers are cooked perfectly, with excellent fries.

Recommended by a staff member at the hotel we stayed at. The burgers were wonderful even though we had to order to go due to having teenagers with us!
