When it opened it had great food but over the years the food quality has gone downhill. I would go here for the bar but not to eat.

Go to this place after the children museum with the kids. Technically a sports bar but the usually quiet when I go. The kids meals good portions and comes includes a kids sized ice cream at end.

Great friendly service, nice to eat outdoors but the food is poor and homeless people are watching you eat

It's a bar with a restaurant. Not a restaurant with a bar. FYI. Lots of TV's. Been a few times. Ordered the fried pork chop tonight. Wasn't expecting much but it was wonderful. Great mashed potatoes and collards too. Service was great. It's not for everyone but if you don't mind a bar atmosphere with some comfort food try it... More

After arriving in town we were looking for a local restaurant. It was full energetic and lively. We had a great waitress and the food was pretty good for bar food. It was a fun atmosphere and would go back again if in town again.

Food was fine. Seafood wasn't local. All in all average. Table wasn't clean. Beer selection is pretty good.

We stopped here after checking out the local antique shops and had a delicious lunch. The menu gave us a lot to choose from and the service was top notch. One of the local antique store owners had recommended this place for us to try. We will stop here again when in the area again.

The food was fantastic. Servings were huge. Had the crab soup. Was full of crab meat and had great flavor. Would recommend it as an appetizer. I had the burrito which was about 8 inches by 4 inches. Was very good, not to spicey and not under spiced. The chips are crisp and cooked to perfection. Would definitely return for... More
