Had a meal here on Thanksgiving, everything is just like your mother would make it and the portions are plentiful. If anything, the kitsch interior is definitely worth of having a beer in here. I recommend the sloppy Joe or any meat sanwich aswell

Really enjoyed this bar. A number of good beers and not too expensive. Very friendly staff too. And the food? Absolutely brilliant but very cheap. Highly recommended

This place is an institution. If you're in the area you must try it. Great food and drink. A little something can be found from around the globe.
