The "very good" rating is for people that don't mind some noise while catching a snack meal. A local landmark, this is not a place for kids, it's a rather rowdy, loud beer joint that serves appetizers and burgers. It's not vulgar or dangerous but...More

Stop in for a friendly beer or sandwich at a reasonable cost. Next to the park and the Zoo. Small front porch to relax and watch the tourist hurry by.
