The name is not flattering but get through this and the food is very good - with an outstanding beer and wine selection. We would definitely go here again if we were in the area. Highly recommended

We visited on April 27th in the afternoon. The waitress was very sweet. Our food was good. We enjoyed the atmosphere. Had a lovely drive from Cherokee just looking around. It was a rainy day. Enjoyed our dinner peacefully with family and friend.
