Great food & staff. It's all done right from the music/food to the beer selection. Friendly place where all is welcome. Sit at the double horseshoe bar & belly up. See ya, there.

Recently renovated menu now boasts a killer steak sandwich, super food salad, and our long time favorite the Turkey burger. Fries are great, wings have the perfect buffalo sauce, and service is always friendly. Sports are on the screens, a fire is always burning on the patio, and well drinks are very fair priced. Drink and food specials every night!... More

Yes it's a bar, you want good food to eat. I've visited twice, once on Taco Tuesday for $2 fish tacos and .50 Oly's which if you put a little hot sauce in your Oly it goes down nicely. Fish taco were delicious. Then Wednesday for music bingo from 7-9. I had a hamburger and it was so good, a... More

The Lift aspires to serve a little better above your average bar food. Some dishes are hit or miss, but for the most part, food is not bad. Some food items, however, are served in a smaller portion size than you may expect. (Nachos, on the other hand, are large enough for two for lunch.) Nice Sunday brunch with $3... More

Everything I tried on the menu is great! Its very unique and very good. Brunch is served Sunday and Monday and is amazing as well. Very easy going atmosphere. I can't take anyone here without them falling in love. The lift is a MUST when in. Fun drink menu and lots to choose from.

I love that we could take our dogs here. The back patio is nice and spacious. OH and it's covered with vines! The food is tasty (it's bar food so don't come here expecting gourmet). The prices were reasonable. I've never spent anytime in side, so I can't comment on that.

The Lift had poor service and was expensive for what you got. Bypass the Lift, Go to The Dutch Goose. The Dutch Goose is just 4 blocks east. The Dutch Goose is Great. From the Draft selection, the 2 for 1 Burgers on Tuesday, to Halibut Fish and Chips. Can’t be Beat!

The nachos here are to die for. Fresh jalapenos and piles upon piles of layered deliciousness. Grab a good beer, enjoy the nice atmosphere of this mellow sports bar and dig in!

I love going there to eat or just drink a beer on the patio. The fish tacos are my favorite. Great service.
