Good portions of a varied menu. Daily specials and attentive staff. A liquor store and lodging all in one location! You could hang for days!

Interesting pub with good food and good service. Many regulars which seem to focus on automated gambling. Would be nicer if this was separated more. Pub is freezing when cold out Parking specified for motorcycles is always full of regulars cars.
