The prices were GREAT. So amazed at the quantity served for the low price. They allow smoking but they have a great exhaust system so the non smokers with us were not bothered. Awesome people and great food. My neighbors who are non smokers go all the time. We met them there last night for our first trip and I... More

I seriously rely on Tripadvisor and Google when travelling to find restaurants and such for my family to eat at. Had I known how bad this place really was I NEVER in a million years would have gone here. The place was beyond a dive! I've been to dives that are better than this place. The food may be inexpensive... More

A number of us selected this establishment for a lunch meeting because of its central location to our varied work sites. Overall, the food was typical bar quality. They had a rather robust menu and a number of daily specials. The serve was knowledgeable and provided great advice for lunch options. The place was a little more smoky than I... More

We weren't really expecting it, but the food was not only excellent but not expensive at all. Service was pretty decent too, and the live band was tops. It's a local hang-out with a bunch of Harleys out front, so don't expect the Ritz, and it is a smoking pub, which was kind of a drawback, but it was really... More

Looking for a place to have dinner and not wanting fast food, we thought we would give Poppa's a try. It was a weekday, but we were still surprised to find that we were the only customers. The waitress motioned us to the tables in the back away from the actual bar area. My first impression as I took my... More

Ive been going here for years and never had a bad experince here. I love in the summer time they have open mic nights on Thursdays on the outside deck. The local bands are awesome on Friday and Saturday nights. The drinks are cheap and the food is amazing. If you ever have the chance to get the rueben....get it!... More

Just a cute, local eatery with great food. They allow smoking and the non-smoking section is basically a closet so if you don't like smoke don't go. It is more of a local hangout than tourists but the bar was hopping. One side had tons of Elvis memoribilia and was quite interesting. Food is not expensive at all.
