The bartender was a little busy but he was also SO rude. If you don't like your job then you should quit- especially if you work in a service industry town, it is imperative to put a smile on your face and make everyone feel...More

We just stopped in to have a couple of drinks. Sat at the bar. Friendly waitress. I think it is more of a restaurant than a bar and the food we saw looked good. Next I will eat here.
