This place is great for almost anyone. There is a large menu which will please anyone from meat eaters to vegetarians. Good drink specials and service. It’s a welcome break from the mediocre chain restaurants in the area.

Best smoked wings and French onion soup I have ever had! Mandy at the bar is stellar ,calls me by name and knows my order even before i do. They have live music in the evenings and a good variety of menu options for lunch.
