Everything about this bar is awesome. It is a very comfortable and relaxed environment. Everyone is friendly, service is great, beers are cheap, food is solid and the whiskey menu is unreal.

Beef Barley Soup is good, as are the salads & sandwiches. Love their Hawaiian...I get mine on the Cranberry walnut bread usually grilled or toasted, stacked with Ham, a slice of pineapple and Swiss cheese.

This little spot has become one of the true hot spots in the Shores. Probably the best single malt scotch selections in the area. Sundays used to have a great Bloody Mary bar.

Limited menu at night. Lots of drink options for bourbon. Service was good. Corktown chicken was good. Selected vegetables instead if potatoes.

Nice to see a new place on Harper. Great burgers and good service. The restaurant has a friendly, homey feel to it. We went for lunch and both had the burgers and drinks. I would definitely go back!

Besides that burger deal - they do have lunch specials and some dinner specials as well. Check the chalk board at the end of the bar in the middle of the restaurant. All sandwiches are piled high.
