Stopped by on a whim, my mac and cheese was delicious, with asparagus on top. My partner's small Cesar salad was a decent size, the grilled chicken was tasty, and everyone's food around us looked wonderful too.

The burger was good. It was cooked the way it was ordered and the bartender was efficient without being overbearing. The partial view into the kitchen was also interesting and it was nice to see that it looked perfectly clean and neat. But the woman...More

Yes, we do still have our pizza buffet. It's $7.99, runs from 11:30am - 2pm, Monday - Friday excluding holidays and major snow storms (due to lack of staffing).

Response from ITProjectManager | Reviewed this property |
Yup, If it's a holiday weekend, you most likely will have to wait for a table. You can take a seat, if one is available, at the bar while you wait for a table. Non holiday weekends are usually good up to about 4:30 - 5:00.
