Had a Smokehouse burger and sweet potato fries here. The burger is HUGE and delicious. Generous portion of fries. The waitress Elizabeth was excellent. Good beer selection on tap. Recommend!

I loved this place when it first opened. It had a good atmosphere, a friendly crowd, capable bartenders and a good price point for food. I often wonder why if something's working, why change it. Soon the cocktails rose in price competing with the likes...More

We stopped in for appetizers and a few beers and were not disappointed. The pretzels and waffle fries are phenomenal!

Party of 4 for lunch. Server was friendly, helpful, and efficient. Salads and appetizers were good , however the chicken was over cooked and dry. Mixed drinks were good. Sandwich and burger average.

You'll find tavern-quality food and an attractive bar here. Our lunchtime experience was mixed; my Smokey's Burger (ordered "medium") was undercooked and came with mediocre coleslaw. My one dining companion disliked the bread used in their French onion soup but enjoyed her Chicken Panini, although...More

The only reason this place got an average rating from me was because the wait staff are so friendly. The food gets a poor rating. I ordered a burger with fries. The burger was ok, but my fries were cold. My wife had a chicken...More

The half-pound Angus burgers are excellent. Cooked exactly the way you want it, including rare. It was crowded with several group events on a Sunday, but that did not interfere with our service or food in any way. We will definitely return.
