Hamburger soup! Never heard of it but it was fabulous. In fact all of the daily home made soups are awesome. The menu is extensive , modern and a lot of variety. Great specials each day. Have been several times now and never disappointed!

I had not been here in about 5 years, as I had always found the food below par. Was planning on meeting a friend to watch the NFL Playoffs and thought I'd give it another try. I dropped in earlier in the day to make sure the game would be on and they said it would. Got there and looked... More

Great local pub, everyone knows about it. They have wing night, and many other specials. Small location, often busy. Parking lot to the side. Many tables for big groups. Alright food.
