I like this place. When I want to meet with a particular friend who works at Rockwell, we always go here. They have good happy hour drink and food specials and the staff is very friendly. Plus - free parking and plenty of it.

We enjoy the friendliness of the staff. Some of the food is outstanding while some is just OK. They have great salads, and soup & sandwich/salad combinations. Great Irish potato skins. The have a large collection of beers on tap which change frequently.
