Three of us ate at the bar after college moving day. Nice to have great service combined with good food. Salmon sandwich and the cheese curds were notable. We will make this our neighborhood eatery.

The menu is nothing special. The bar is nothing special. The tap beers are okay, with a few local craft brews. The staff is friendly and the burgers are broiled and delicious. Inexpensive! Friend and I each had a burger, shared onion rings, and drank...More
