Many locals frequent here. Good drinks and food. The set up does not seat many and it gets filled fast at prime time.

Met friends for dinner on a Monday night around 6:00. Our service wasn't the best (maybe because we're not drinkers) Ordered my hamburger cooked medium and it was well done. It was just OK. I do agree with some of the other reviews that the...More

Nice to see a new place on Harper. Great burgers and good service. The restaurant has a friendly, homey feel to it. We went for lunch and both had the burgers and drinks. I would definitely go back!

Known for their large selection of whiskey, some quite pricey. Aside from that, there are 17 beers on tap, many local brews, the food is good American classic fare. You must have the barley soup. Specials daily. The 4-top table are shadow box style, with...More

We went to this place on the urging of friends. While the 1/3lb bacon cheeseburger and the mushroom burger were very good, it was just not worth the price. Two burgers, one order of fries, and two Blue Moons for $30 is overpriced in my...More

A small, neighborhood tavern with good eats where "everybody knows your name!" Focusing on their whiskey collection, you won't be disappointed if you love whiskey. Their Sunday brunch is a hidden gem---a Bloody Mary bar, the usual offerings for breakfast plus a few suprises, but...More

Second review for me to rave about this weekend's specials - offerings included prime rib, a lobster bisque which we thought was worthy of a 5-star restaurant, delicious short ribs, and Florida Grouper which sounded so good that we may go back tonight to try...More

Besides that burger deal - they do have lunch specials and some dinner specials as well. Check the chalk board at the end of the bar in the middle of the restaurant. All sandwiches are piled high.
