I love this place for fish. Their poor mans lobster is my favorite. You get a good amount for the money. Bartenders and wait staff are all very friendly. Well worth the drive.

This neighborhood tavern has good burgers and a nice Friday fish fry. They have a separate back room that is nice for parties and for buffet set ups. Local characters add to the charm of this place. The prices are reasonable and the food is very good.

Great food and good service. Always see people you know and John is the consummate host. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Variety of home cooked meals and sandwiches. Friday night fish fry and the French dip sandwich particularly good. Be sure to try the brew city fries. Wine is only so so. Service is always friendly and efficient even if it is crowded. Owner is mostly there and takes the trouble to chat and ask if your meal is okay. Nice... More
