Great for a late beer on a Friday evening. Good people good vibes and atmosphere. The music was good as well and the choice of drinks as well.

I expected a little more than I found in this restaurant. My salmon burger was a piece of salmon on a bun, I expected a real salmon mixed with other ingredients burger type of item. Overall the food is so-so, atmosphere very pub like rather than a restaurant. Great for a drink and quick bit but not what I would... More

Met my son for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. First impression...clean,airy, lots of TVs and a great looking Bloody Mary bar. Not too crowded but busy. Nice specials menu that had some clever selections. I just ordered a chicken shawarma sandwich and son ordered a short rib burger with black truffle...13 bucks. My sandwich was good, a bit skimpy on... More

We had dinner here with another couple. The food is mediocre. The atmosphere is young noisy and usually crowded in the evening. If you want that and sports tvs this is a good place. If you want a nicer dinner choose one of Main Streets other options.

Their assortment of burgers on the menu is out of this world!! It is best to go in an off time as it is very difficult to hear your companies conversation. Trying to carry on a conversation in this place is near impossible.

This is really a gathering place for twenty and thirty year olds. It is always hopping at night with local young people.

Had an awesome burger for lunch, but probably won't be back unless I'm with more people... Got the distinct impression my server had "better things to do" than wait on a single person, even though the place was mostly empty. Also a bit pricey for lunch

Not busy yet slow service. Order was wrong didn't have sugar on the table for coffee or tea and never asked if we needed anything. Seems like they have only 2 waitresses running around like crazy

Went here on a Sunday night for dinner with friends. The first thing you notice when you walk in is that your shoes stick to the floor. It's like they have glue on them, kind of gross. It is a bar environment with loud music, TV's and a sporty motif with local high school sport logos. There are large garage... More
