Stopped in with a friend. First time visit. Service was prompt and friendly. Plenty of beers on tap. Wide variety on menu and everything was great. I'd go back.

We kept the old handcrafted favorites: the signature burgers, sandwiches, hand cut fries. And added a surprise or two: Elk burger, house made bacon? Hello. And just wait until you see the 1880's bar and enjoy our happy hour specials Monday - Friday from 3-6 and 2-5 on weekends. Bring the family, the friends, the neighbors. Private room available with seating for 50 or cocktail parties for up to 75. Full service patio and deck.
