    Crab wasn't fresh, requested new and very quickly received a new crab cob styled salad, (forget the name) that was amazing. So, they don't always have perfection, but quickly rectify and problems.

    It's a bit ridiculous that you can't select two styles (sauces) when you order a bucket of wings.

    If you get the "dirt" wings, get them BBQ style. I love normal buffalo wings (and they're good here too), but there's something magical about the caramelized sweetness of double-fried BBQ sauce.

    Skip the wings (venture down to New Milford's First and Ten for the best-in-state) but be sure to order the Cheddar Ale Soup with a soft pretzel while you're here - its the thing dreams are made of.

    Dirt wings are great. Buffalo sauce cranked up a few notches in heat and wings are crispy. The pretzel appetizer is to die for.
