    The pizza was good despite all the pictures that make it look like cardboard. Great light crisp crust, good sauce and ingredients.

    Restaurant with lots of character and a beautiful year round patio. Brunch on weekends and Bears game specials on Sundays. Breakfast burritos are ample and tasty.

    I love this place for the beer list and desserts. They may not know the difference between asparagus tips and the stalk but I don't eat either so who cares. Great choice for al fresco dining!

    A hidden gem! Awesome salads, summer = a gorgeous patio. Not awesome: the service (they seem to forget about tables if you're eating), & locals shrieking at the bar. Make it Cheers, not Barleycorns.

    Great bar. Everyone knows everyone, but the place is large, so there's lots of room for new regulars and visitors. Large and unique beer list.

    Go for brunch! The Veggie Lovers Skillet is delicious and there’s a Bloody Mary bar if that’s your beverage of choice.

    Blackened catfish in all it's forms is fantastic. Love the ribs and pork chops too. Chicken strips, not so much.

    Build your own Bloody Mary bar on the weekends until 3pm is seriously great. Make one with sriracha sauce, you won't regret it!
