“Always Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2012

A sports bar where you can talk with your table mates. Nice menu including broasted chicken, wraps, sandwiches, and even sweet potato fries. Prices are very fair. We stop in at least once a month.

“Love the BLTs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2012 via mobile

It's a great place to go if looking for a good meal that doesn't take long to make. The restaurant looks like it would not be that great but the food is fantastic. Its a place we always go to when we don't have much time. They take the order and next thing you know, the food is ready. And it's good too. I'd definitely go there again. Just know when sports are on TV. It can get busy and loud during the games (they have several TVs).

“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

Their broasted chicken is outstanding. The beer is cold, service is terrific, games are going on the TVs. What's not to like?

“Cold beer and good service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2012 via mobile

We had reservations for a large group (approx 20). We were seated together at 3 tables. The waitress took drink orders and names quickly. She was also assigned to multiple other tables which seemed a bit overwhelming to her. She did a fantastic job remembering where drinks went and names and offered to split the check, we did not have to ask! I believe her name was Rikki, I would definitely ask for her as a waitress. I had the Broasted chicken and tater tots. The chicken was worth ordering, exceptionally juicy but could have been seasoned a bit better and was a tad bit greasy. Ambience was very conducive to conversation. But we did have to wait quite some time for our food orders to be taken (this should be read as the restaurant was very busy and it took more than average time to get to our table). Prices were decent, and the beer was cold! Would definitely return. I did not see Mike the owner around the restaurant tonight but he can often be seen mingling with guests. He is hard to miss as his face is on the cover of the menu. In the past he has seemed like a nice guy who cares about his restaurant.
