We were a group of 10 stopped in for lunch. Good service from our waitress and great food had by all. Burgers, fish and chips and beef dip were some of the food ordered. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We have eat here several times now when in the Amherst area and never had bad food or service.

Met some friends for lunch over the weekend and had a great time. Food was very good and reasonably priced, the server Shelly is a riot! It may be a bit older and run down but suits us just fine when we are in the area, cold beverages and great food at an affordable price...what more would you want?

Excellent food, great service and reasonable prices. Their cheeseburgers are to-die-for! Have never had an issue with anything I have ordered though

A quaint little country bar that was hopping. The DJ/entertainment was very engaging. The beer was cold, the staff very friendly. Would go back in a minute.

If you're feeling like fresh fish & chips, this is the place to go - super fresh fish & real fries! They also do amazing wings - homemade in-house recipe.
