We have been here on several occasions. Always happy with the food and the wait staff. Never seems overly busy either. Beer battered fries are a favorite.

First, the service was mediocre. Beer was decent. They have some good dark beers. Actually had fun with other customers though. I'd go back and have drinks again.
