Met at the door, seated quickly in a full bar eating area, with a dozen screens. Lots of beers on tap, excellent menu selection, better than hotel food. Great service, which is the most important aspect of dining anywhere.

First of all, they didn't bat an eye when we let them know we had a service dog. They were quite accommodating and kind, very friendly and the breakfast buffet was awesome (would have loved to have seen bacon though lol).

While the service was not up to par for late night snacks, the food was great. Prices were reasonable. We have been here in the past and the service was great so this visit will not change our opinion of the place.More

The slightly irreverent attitude has become our calling card over the years, doing things the way we always have regardless of convention. We're still making fresh hand-crafted burgers, roasting our own turkey and chicken, slow-basting our falling-off-the-bone-tender ribs, and hiring the friendliest people to be part of our team. Why bother? Because bigger and better isn't just an attitude. It's a commitment to everyone who comes through our door.The party is still going strong today. The burgers are still huge, the beer is still cold and with 30 draught beers and 30 flat-screens, we're the best place to watch the game!
