This place is great. We had a party of six coworkers and received prompt attention from our server. The beer selection is tremendous and the food is awesome. We had various burgers, crab mac and cheese and the Jeagerschnitzel. The food was fantastic and we certainly didn't leave room for dessert. Get the pretzel appetizers, you won't be disappointed.

I joined a group of friends for dinner and drinks. We had a beer then ordered dinner. Another person and I ordered the kielbasa sandwich on pretzel bread. Once the food arrived, instead of the sandwiches that we ordered, we were given a pretzel appetizer. The waiter said he misunderstood our order but would not charge us for the pretzel... More

Had a wonderful table for eight away from everyone else so we could hear each other talk. Wait staff was very attentive, answering questions about the meals and beer list - brought us some samples to help us choose, which we really appreciated.

The meal was good. We both had a salad. The atmosphere was really good as the ceilings were high and we sat close to the fireplace. The service is the key reason why I'm writing this review. We had a young server (I'm guessing early 20s at best). I'm just mentioning that to give a picture of the rest of... More

I have eaten at other locations and liked the food but the service was something to be desired. I tried this location with higher expectations. Unfortunately, the service was less than desired and the food was meh. I will not go back to any location ever.

I got the Bacon Black & Blue burger. Cajun seasoned burger, applewood bacon, gorgonzola, lettuce, tomatoes, onions. With sweet potato fries. I am glad I did! We started with the Spinach, Crab & Artichoke Dip Lump blue crab meat, artichoke hearts, baby spinach, parmesan cream sauce, pretzel bread. It was loaded with crabmeat!

My best friend & I went for lunch. She ordered a petite steak, green beans and au gratin potatoes. I had Pork Belly Taco with sweet potato fries and sweet tea. I asked for more tea, and was given regular tea, not sweet tea. We each had a Brownie Rockslide, which was amazing. The restaurant was almost empty, so no... More

This was our second choice for Sunday brunch, but we're glad we ended up here. Four adults, a kid, and a baby and we all enjoyed it. Restaurant was not crowded at 10 AM and we enjoyed eating and talking and were never rushed to leave. Service was quick and pleasant. We liked it much better than Cafe Catarra.
