I love to eat at the local places and this bar/ grill has a decent menu. I ordered a pizza and made it to my own taste. They cooked it perfectly. My boyfriend and I have just ordered food to go sometimes depending on the crowd in the bar. I do like that it is diversified, just sometimes people are... More

I hope to be moving full-time to East Irondeqoit in the next couple of months and so far, this has been the best bar in that area. This is a big regulars bar, so we got cold shoulders early on, but now I feel comfortable going in there. There are great beer specials and the food is really good. The... More

Limited menu with some interesting selections. Try the muscles they are fabulous. The inside seating can be a little loud when they are busy. The outdoor patio is fun.The service is great and the staff is very friendly and accomodating.

I used to hang out when it was Cal's many, many years ago. Went there with my wife and four friends for a fish fry last night. Plenty of parking and we got there early (5:00 PM) to avoid a crowd and waiting time. Got right in for 6 people. Service was good, but a little slow. Friendly and talkative... More

They may not be "Politically Correct" as they have something called "White Trash Wednesdays" with $1 Pint draft specials , Cheap (but delicious) appetizers and entrees. But as this is a neighborhood bar reflecting a diverse clientele, nobody Black or White complains! Their wings and pizza are as good as they can be, and they also do a brisk takeout... More

Wings and burgers are nearly the best in area. Artichokes French very good. They have specials during the week. Tacos, steaks etc. you should take advantage cause they are a great value and very good.
