Decent pub food. Jalapeno bacon burger was tasty. My family enjoyed the cheese curds. Lots of choices on the kids menu. Beer selection was pretty good. They have tater tots as a side dish and that's always a good thing.

Typical burger chain food. Nothing separating it from the others. However, don't let that statement deter you from going. It is a clean place with very good food.
