Eight golfers went for Happy Hour. We ordered eight appetizers, which we shared and many discounter drinks. Service and food was great. Portions were large, and we passed on eating dinner, just ice cream later. Highly recommended

You can choose to sit by/at the bar, in the table area, or outside. The menu is a complete selection and their stuffed burgers are a treat.
