    The burger was excellent! And the Fries were amazingly displayed in a cute little brown paper sack! They have a decent selection of Drafts and and the liqueur selections not bad at all!! Loved it!

    Best service, food&atmosphere. The staff is super friendly. Every other meal I've ever had there has been great. The owner is always there&really cares about his business. 5 stars in my book.

    Brunch overall is great. Very generous portion sizes. My only thing is it was $5 extra for a side of eggs (to go with the pancakes that isn't served with them) but great service and atmosphere

    The mini pies are so delicious!! The waitress was really pushy, besides that the service and the beer was really good.

    Beef and Guiness Pie and Ramstein Oktoberfest are perfect. This place is listed as bar food. It's not.

    This is only good for the next few weeks, but get the pumpkin beer. Banter dresses your pint in spices and it's excellent with a capital E.

    The mini pies are not worth it. I ordered the Jameson Spring Rolls; when I bit into it they were soggy and cold. Waited quite a while before I got to even order a drink. Even that wasn't good. 
