Very pleasantly surprised to find this place. It was around three in the afternoon and almost empty. Service was great. The beer list was great. We ordered a black bean burger and they were able to deliver a turkey Rueben that wasn't on the menu....More

Wife and I dined on Nick's patio twice on this visit to the High Country. Patio always looks a bit forlorn/forgotten, but as usual, we found a great new draft beer, this time a raspberry white Ale. My choice on the first visit was the...More

I love everything I've ever had for lunch here...and their soups are to die for. Had today's special soup, which was Cabbage Sausage, and it was fantastic. Sandwiches, salads, and French fries are all great. Definitely a place to enjoy.

We have eaten here serveral times. Good menu, food is good and service is good. It is a little dark in the restaurant. They do have a bar and a lot of the locals come in to fringe beer and socialize. Average but consistent.
