Tasty food at reasonable prices.....They have delicious sandwiches and soups. Haven't tried the Friday fish fry yet but look forward to it in the future. Even bowls of popcorn to tied you over.

Great place to unwind after a long days work. The food is good and the popcorn is a nice touch. I have been going for years and will continue.

Enjoy the ambiance of this place. Best burgers in DeKalb! Try the onion straws, too. This is a lovely neighborhood gem.

The menu is general pub fare, much fried and grilled like burgers and fries. Over the years they have expanded the sandwich menu so everyone can find something to enjoy. Prices are reasonable and food is good quality. Friday fish fry is always busy but...More
