Have eaten here a few times over the years but don't think we'll be back. Our party of four visited a couple weeks ago and only one person enjoyed their meal. One ordered the Rover Turkey Club and the turkey was sour. Another ordered the Bison Burger which is typically a melt in your mouth type of meat and he said it tasted like a frozen beef patty, Another ordered some type of steak tip sandwich and he said it was not good. In addition our waitress was not very friendly or attentive. Plenty of other options in the area so we'll opt to go elsewhere next time.

Stopped by for breakfast and they did eggs benny on corned beef hash pretty good. A couple locals were talking to the bartender about the previous evening they were in the bar and the bartenders were witty and very pleasant. Bartenders even recommended areas in the city to check out when they heard we were passing through town.

Have been a few times now and the last two times the band called "Songs with Molly" played. Pretty good band! Had the general munchie foods, potatoes skins, chicken tenders, etc. and all very good, with decent portions. Service was pretty good, but would have been a little quicker if they had another person working it. Recommend this place for a fun time with your friends.

Visited on a Friday night and they made room for 9 of us. They had a small but decent selection of beers, including a good pale ale they said was their own. The atmosphere was nice and they had a pretty good singer/guitar player. The wait staff was pleasant but either slow or over-stretched. They were out of their signature tater tots by 8:30, but most of the food was OK. Three of us ordered burgers and none were cooked properly. The rare was medium, and the two medium-rares were cooked to well-done. In fact mine was pretty much burned. I sent it back and still got a well-done instead of a medium rare. It wasn't comped, but I did get a beer taken off the check. Overall, I'd say a nice place to hang out and have a beer, but wouldn't go out of the way for dinner.
