A truly inventive menu -- among other items, you can get a burger that is half bacon or topped with a cornbread crab cake. Sweet wings or beer batter onion rings are highly recommended. Service was slow probably because cigar afficianados prefer a leisurely pace;...More

Went with friends to Cigarfest 17, and had the chance to go to the wooden match, their sign states, "Beer Meat Cigars" what guy wouldn't want to have lunch there! The food was excellent, this is a must stop, even if you don't enjoy cigars!

My wife and I had dinner here the other day. It was quite good. The food was tasty, the prices reasonable, and the service friendly. We had a few small hiccups but it was handled quick and professionally. They also have a nice section of...More

We went for a nice outdoor lunch on a hot day. I'm used to the heat, but waiting for 25 min for water while the waitress stood 20 feet away texting and laughing with the hostess WHILE HOLDING THE WATER is completely unacceptable. She cleared...More

Very cost and nice location on an old railroad station. Food is diverse and good value for money. They serve menus with cigars included.
