The food was good and not very expensive. Good service and a pleasant place to eat. It is a sports bar but you can get a table that is quiet.

We don't typically like your standard chain restaurants, but this one is an exception. There is a perfect outdoor patio when the weather is nice and they have entertainment there frequently. The food and service are both good.
