The chicken wings are awesome. Many different types and flavors. The deserts are home made. The drinks are always made to your liking.

No frills family restaurant with full bar in the back. Classic favorites - a lot of good fried stuff, but also great salad, burgers, sandwich and entree choices. The blackened redfish sandwich was outstanding. The service was professional. Highly recommend for casual dining.

Great service, food & price😀 A family neighborhood bar & restaurant! This is just like the neighborhood pub that my parents took me to in Erie, Pennsylvania. Try it, you'll love it!
