A couple friends and I ate here last week and had a few beers as well. We typically have a good experience here, but not this time. The server was inattentive, the pizza I ordered had the wrong toppings, and the tater tots a couple...More

This is a great place to spend watching a game or enjoying comfort food and beer. We enjoyed ourselves. It was perfect for a college town.
