Nothing to write home about. The service was very poor as the waitress did not get over to ask about drinks for 10 minutes after we sat down, yet found time to wait on another table that came in after us! The food is really glorified bar food and is not a barbeque or smokehouse as they would like you to believe. I probably will not go back there.

You will be surprised, as we were, by the extensive menu at this neighborhood tavern. We went with a large group and only two people ordered the same thing. Plenty of interesting salads, sandwiches, and entrees are to be found. I tried the smoked pulled pork and it was so good that it didn't need the BBQ sauce offered in a side cup. My gluten free daughter was thrilled to see grilled chicken strips on the kids menu. I heard the steak salad was delicious. The only poor review came about the grilled chicken Caesar salad. "No flavor", which seemed strange since many times Caesars can be overpowering. Our group of 11 will be back soon!

Friendly neighborhood spot with good food, great prices, friendly staff, and lots of good beer on tap. Casual sports bar vibe. Lots of local folks, kid friendly (but not TOO kid friendly), and they have a great deck and outdoor seating area with fire pit.

Just had a beer and some soup. Soup was good. Beer choices get changed around often enough. Staff always super friendly

Food was typical tavern type food. They made attempt to be different by offering some different items. Very small menu so you would think they would have perfected the items better than what they did. The BBQ brisket is really good. Was a bit pricey for food that was served. We left feeling like we did not get a good value for our money spent.
