Great food and drinks! Chad our server has waited on us before and is excellent and Tyler stopped out to say hi because we mentioned him to Chad about a pre ious visit. The management should be proud of their team and the wonderful customer service!

A little pricey for what it is. They charged extra to add pickles to an $18 burger.

Our server Nick S. was the best...he was charming, personable and attentive without being intrusive. Our ribeye burgers were perfect...they are the best burgers in town.

Was perfect for a casual date night for my boyfriend and I. Tables were spaced apart and everything was clean. The printer was in need of maintenance so the menus were hard to read but that was a minor inconvenience. Our drinks and food were delicious and came in a timely manner. I had the 80/20 and he had the classic. Both burgers were moist and flavorful and the fries were crisp. We enjoyed our evening and will be back.

Probably one of the best experiences at a restaurant since Covid crept into our lives. The restaurant did a great job spreading out the tables, cleaning the area as we arrived etc. I can’t believe we haven’t eaten here before. The waitress advised we had 5 minutes left in Happy Hour and I placed a quick order for a glass of wine. She was prompt with drinks and the perfect amount of friendly without being too chatty! I had the short rib grilled cheese with fries and added the Brussels sprouts. The sandwich with grilled pimento cheese was amazing. My husband loved his classic burger with the Kaelins sauce. The fries were hot and crispy just like you want them to be. Took a pint of banana cream pie ice cream to go..amazing. Next time I’ll try a boozy milkshake!

We both think that we just ate the best burger we've ever had. Service was great and 2 mgr came to our table asking if there was anything we needed and thanking us for coming in. Sorry photo shows a bite in the burger and a empty Pain Mgt drink.

With the restrictions on capacity they have opened outdoor seating in a “heated” tent. There is only one heater at one end of the tent. We were seated at the opposite end and could see our breathe. Appetizers were good and came out quickly, but the main dishes took 45 minutes to come out. There were a few mistakes in accuracy of the order.

Great food for the price. We were were for a COVID safe NYE supper with the family. The food was excellent as were the cocktails. My only complaint was the tent outside supposedly had a heater but they had not turned it on until we got there or it wasn't working properly because it was extremely cold (according to the hostess). Otherwise, the service and value was great.

This place was fantastic! The drinks were on point! The apps we chose were the beer cheese and Brussels and both were amazing! My wife and I split the 80/20 burger and 1/2 fried chicken and both exceeded expectations! Super crispy and full flavor chicken with nice hearty mash potatoes and the burger was juicy and hit the spot perfectly! Definitely not a health food restaurant but for a cheat night, I can’t think of a better spot! I will be back

I had the open faced roast beef and it was amazing! Our server was really nice, funny and very efficient. We didn’t have to request anything. Our drinks would be half empty and he was asking if we were ready for more. Big pet peeve of ours at restaurants so we were very appreciative of the attentive service.

We ate here for the first time the beginning of September with family and I loved it so much I just had lunch there with girlfriends. It might become our new go-to place. I've had the cheeseburger and the Benedictine BLT and both were delicious, along with the brussel sprouts, grits and french fries. Love it all - but that BLT is still on my mind!! ♥

We had reservations for dinner to celebrate an anniversary. We were able to sit out on the front deck due to the warm fall weather. It was delightful! We had drinks and appetizers which were scrumptious. Dinner was excellent as well. Our waiter was very attentive, took our picture, and was very personable. It was a lovely evening!

The food was great, service as well. The noise level was a little too high to carry on a casual conversation however. I would recommend to others as well as will be returning.
