Our group met here for lunch and we had a nice time. The restaurant wasn't crazy busy at the time we came so we were able to sit and talk for a while. We all ordered salads and they were very good. Waitstaff was extremely prompt in providing anything that was needed.

The burgers are amazing, shrimp scampi is very spicy. The bread pudding is to die for. Service was lack luster and the wait to get our food was pretty long. It is a bit expensive for bar food.

My wife and I met another couple for brunch at noon on Sunday. I ordered the biscuits and gravy. I was told by my server that they were out of gravy and wouldn't have more until the cook came in. What..? There's no cook for brunch..? So I ordered the breakfast sandwich. I have never had anything at McDonald's that... More

Food was greasy and service was poor. Waitress was rude and took a long time to get silverware. They may need to change the grease in their deep fryers more often. Wife loves their deep fried pickles and she said they came to the table hot and greasy. Not the best, doubt we will ever be back.

This is a cool place... The staff was vibrant and energetic. The food was hot and flavorful. Many choices to select from and you don't leave feeling hungry. There was a very short wait for a table... I prefer sitting at the bar when traveling, but that was packed which in my opinion means you have a great place... Go... More

Staff are friendly and attentive. Broad selection of beers to choose from. Food is standard sports bare fare. We had burgers that were average. Food was warm, not hot when served.

Yes they have great food. I like to relax after a long week and to have a Red Sangria on their heated patio. Well I must say my husband and I both enjoy very much!

We really liked this restaurant. Has a nice atmosphere, the servers are very nice. It's very clean. I had a shrimp pasta it was really good. My husband had a steak and he loved it. We would definitely visit another one. This is the second one we have tried

In town for business, and we stumbled into this place, mostly because of the unique name. VERY impressed with the food and service. Suggest the sweet chili wings, and the Bucket Trio which is a half turkey club sandwich, and choice of salad and choice of soup; had the lobster bisque and double nickel salad. Nick was our server and... More
