    Very solid bar food and beer list. In the fall they have a spicy turkey burger with cranberry sauce and jalapeños, which is quite tasty!

    Paul C.Big, clean lounge & dining room, lots of *true* HD TVs with all the local and out-of-town games. Great place, just a little pricey.

    Food is delicious here. There's a wide selection of beer but while I was there they were sold out of most. Food and drinks are a bit pricey.

    It's a tolerable sports bar with a solid beer selection and a lot of TVs to watch a game. I'd steer clear of the food, though.

    The music can get excessively loud, on the bar side, but the restaurant side can be pretty cozy and comfortable.

    Two half sandwiches took 35 minutes to come to our table. Our drinks were never refilled and we saw our server twice.

    If you like loud bars with lots of people standing around then this is your place. Don't expect to eat here on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday.
