“Bad Food Bad Service”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Pork was dry and had no flavor, the brisket was more like a roast, the slaw was good, but everything else was bad even the service the waitress was talking with each other the whole time we were there we were never asked for a refill on drink, will never go back.

“Guitars and Show Tickets”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

What would you do if you worked in Music Radio for years? Retire to upstate NY and open a bar. High above the bar, mounted on the wall are over a dozen signed guitars and if the owner is in he will share the stories behind them. Also, dozens of tickets and back stage passes to show are laid out under the glass of this bar. The food is reasonably priced, we only had wings (both Chicken and Hawg) but they were great the BBQ sauce on the Hawg wing was really special. This place should be rated way above other places in town.

“Fun atmosphere!”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

We hesitated to enter this restaurant since it appeared empty on a Friday night but their secret is in the upstairs dining room. The atmosphere was fun, upbeat and electric. It was an affordable dinner with outstanding service and great menu options - slim picks for vegetarians but options were there and substitutions were accommodated.

“Don't mess with Texas”
Reviewed 16 February 2013 via mobile

Stopped in on a Saturday about 3:30. Not sure if it was between lunch and dinner or just slow, but the place was empty. However the food was very good. Decent beer selection. It's nice to see a restaurant supporting local craft beers. The owner stopped by the table to check on us and talked for a while. Very nice guy. Will definitley be back.
