Today we visited for lunch and there were so many good choices that I decided to go with the special burger called half and half. If I understood correctly, the pastrami is ground into the ground beef and it was simply amazing. I look forward...More

Ordered the fish & chips over the sgepard's pie on the recommendation of the server. You get one fairly large filet, but the breading was not crisp and was as soft as the meat. The fries, which she touted, were average and thin.. Atmosphere was...More
