Relaxing, laid back, great place to watch sports while eating and good food. What more do you want? They also have takeout, for those who like eating at home. My husband likes the onion rings and chicken wings. I like the salads and the tater...tots.More

Great location! Seating indoors with a great bar, quiet corners and TV for those in need. Even better outdoor space for couples, dates, families, groups And Yes...Your furry friend!. The staff is so helpful and caring. The food is so much better than the basic..." bar food". I had an amazing salmon BLT with avocado and super fries! Special high 5's to Mattie and Dalton and all the others who's names I can't remember!More

A must stop, but be warned-they fill up quick. We were lucky and just got in before the lunch crowd came. We sat at the bar and had great service from a clearly busy staff team. We had the wings, tarot tots and the gyro....All were fantastic and we would order them again. Huge kudos to the teams for a quality meal with great customer service! Thanks!More

Very busy Saturday afternoon but excellent service by Stella and staff. Excellent food. A great time was had by all! Really loved that the staff sang along with Jefferson Starship! Highly recommend this place. We will be back when we vacation here in the fall...and request our funny, salty server who worked really hard to make our experience a great one!More

We had eaten at the highlands location a few days earlier and loved it, so I was pretty upset at the comparison. The tater tots and fries have a different seasoning on them, and the Highlands were much better. They were still good tots and...fries, but the white bbq chicken sandwich was not great. The bacon that came on my sandwich was the greasiest bacon I’ve ever been served, with a thick layer of congealed fat that I had to wipe off with my napkin. Additionally, the sandwich wasn’t anything impressive. My husband had a burger and also agreed the Highlands location was better.More

Good food, friendly staff, good beer! Kids enjoyed nachos, I had fried green tomatoes. Wings were delicious.

The food was great and the portions were large enough to have leftovers for later. Staff was very friendly and the restaurant was nicely decorated and clean.

Friendly service staff, great location, previously very good experiences, a go-to place but now a "not again" place. Was served a rueben that consisted of tiny cubed bits of corned beef in a goo of cheese. Had to reconfigure to make half of a sandwich...since not enough meat to make a whole. This was not a rueben. When asked about it, was told that that is the way they do it. Thought maybe an exception but wife's salad with chicken also had tiny cubes of chicken, too few to be considered a salad with chicken. Everything else good but ultimately felt ripped off and won't go back to this or Highlands location after years of loving both.More

The food was good but they had ran out of corn beef for the Rueben I ordered and it was only 1pm. I went with the waitresses recomendation and it was good but still disappointed.
