Good service. Great ribs. Salmon on salad was best of the week. Very casual place, just quality food and service.

Service was great and so was the food. You could sit outside or in. The list of beers was quite extensive - I would go again.

Enjoyed the cheese curds and the fish taco special was good also. Only offered RC products so that was a dissapointment.

I'm sorry if you were disappointed by our beverage selection. That said, I'm thrilled your cheese curds and tacos more than made up for it. Hope you'll be back for more fried deliciousness soon! Until then, Linden Ray, Owner
