Upstairs is a bit more fancy but with the same great local vibe as the pub downstairs. Great Cajun wings and burgers as well as inventive specials. Catch live music Friday nights downstairs and make some new friends 😀

A friend of mine recommended this place. The bar is a sit at but the building is very small inside. Sit down seating limited and so is the menu. Its defiantly American style eatery. Glad I went for lunch may have not found a seat...More
