As a premier Pub & Grill we serve the best in gourmet burgers, fries,sandwiches, nachos, wraps, craft beers, beer, wine, martinis & cocktails, along with weekday lunch specials and nightly dinner specials. We are located in the old bus station so our exterior is very unique, however inside you will find state of the art Tv's, sound system and Vegas style comfortable seating.
