While this place doesn't have tons of curb appeal, the staff and food are always pretty great. We typically go in a larger group and the staff is always accommodating. Pizzas are very good and we rarely try anything else.

Have eaten here a few times, always good food. The stuffed shrimp and the pizzas are great. So are all the bar burger's. Kelly behind the bar is always checking to make sure our mugs are full.

We stop here quite frequently. The food is very well prepared. Sandwiches have all been tasty- place is small and dark but the food makes it worthwhile

Waitress Kim was great, very attentive to our needs. The steaks were good, the appetizer was tasty. The beer is cold, and keno is fun plus sports on TVs

Stopped by for lunch while at the park. Great burgers and a nice homey atmosphere. Reminds me of the taverns I used to go to many years ago. Brings back a lot of memories. Very nice people.
