    Tiny facility, but stick around, the food is well worth the wait. Delicious fish fries on Fridays. Burgers are made fresh and taste fantastic!

    Great bacon cheddar burger!! Best ever had from bar. I will say that it is a very small place, so beware. It is also lacking parking, all in all I will return. 😃🍔

    Great burgers sourced from Knoche's Meat Market across the street. Cozy, authentic, Wisconsin neighborhood tavern.

    Possibly the best steak sandwich in town. Sweet potato fries are nice alternative. Fish fry on Wednesday's not as crowded as the packed house Fridays.

    The dream team here is Oscar on bar and Craig on the grill ... experience trumps youth, here.
