We stopped here for lunch and ordered their bourbon burgers. We chose the fries for one side and their black & tan onion rings as the other. The sandwiches and both side items were all delicious. We also enjoyed their outside seating on a nice...More

Okay restaurant. I thought to sandwich was small by today's enormous standards. Service was good. Place was clean. Location is in a unique section of town that never got out of the 1960's.

This place had been closed for a remodeling because new owners took it over. The seats at the tables are benches, all wood, and if you don't have much of a cushion (like me) they were very uncomfortable. The service was not good and the...More

This is a great old local pub to enjoy. A really nice spot on the main drag to sit outside when the weather is nice, enjoy a beer and have a burger! They recently made some updates improving the place. Its a place to relax...More

We arrived around 3pm on a busy Sunday afternoon. Admittedly, it is a bit of a strange time to eat, but it would have been a late lunch / early dinner for us. There were two of us and we asked for a table outside....More
