“Unprepared for busy weekend”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

Have been here two other times and have had ok food and service, stopped in on a winter carnival Saturday and received the worst service I've ever had. Had there been anywhere else close by we would not have stayed. Took over half hour for drinks and longer for food. When we finally got food the Chicken sandwich was disappointing and was tough and gristly, fish was good but paid extra for onion rings and got 5 rings - disappointing with a $2 up charge. We had to chase waitress down to pay her so we could leave. If there isn't enough staff to provide decent service then don't seat tables. Would consider returning maybe...

“Great burger place with more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

Place is always busy and service has always been very good. Best thing is you can build a burger and they DONT charge you for every little thing you add on. Hard to find a good deal like that anymore

“Good ambience and food. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014 via mobile

We chose to go here after the place we wanted to go to was closed. The food was satisfying to all of us - I had the chicken tortellini and really enjoyed the cream sauce. My father had a chimichanga and my mom the TBC. I would definitely go again, the wait staff were friendly. The prices weren't gouging you for being a tourist. Thank you.

“Nice place to get out of the cold.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

Good bar with a very pleasant owner/barkeep. Fair prices, good tap beer selection. Food is very good and reasonably priced. A good choice in the cold winter and summer too.
