First time there and did not know that they had a special menu on the weekends before noon and there was no chicken on the menu and I dont eat fried or hamburger. They were able to accommodate me with a nice grilled chicken breast. Server was very nice also. I would recommend but its not cheap eats.

The presentation of the food was done well. The salmon dish was good however would have been better with less salt. Beet salad, roast the beets. It appeared they were from a jar/can. A manager touched our table, that was great.

Food was great. The pork chop was delicious. Service was extremely slow but they were very nice. The tables were all high with high seats or c-shaped. Not ok when you are short and can’t get up on the high seats too easily or when you are with friends at the c-shaped tables and it’s difficult to talk.

We had happy hour and dinner and the patio and it was a perfect day. The deals for happy hour are a bit limited in terms of food but overall it’s a great spot to grab a bite with friends.

Maybe an off night???? Had to keep requesting water 4 of us at table and only brought water for 2. The old fashioned was watered down, our food was extremely salty and our fries were dripping in oil.

Food is salty..... the salad without dressing was salty! Who puts salt on a salad.? Earlier in the week we went to Wheeling. Impossible burger was very salty! The fries are salty! I love the vibe in the restaurant and I will try it one more time! Hopefully I can remember to ask for no salt!

Great food and great staff! Lots of TVs and a nice outdoor seating area.
We tried the Buffalo shrimp, Smoked Chicken Wings and Filet Mignon Sliders. My 6 y/o had the Kids flat bread pizza.
We enjoyed the food! It had great flavors and filled us up!
An overwhelming selection of beers, a list of cocktails and wines as well.
Definitely recommend trying it out!

I'll try again when they've had a chance to shake out the kinks. While the food is good, the service was TERRIBLE. My brother had to LITERALLY go to the service station to request our dessert and the check. After NO apology, but a quick "it'll be out in a minute", we waited ANOTHER 15 minutes for our dessert to go, during which time he never asked if we needed anything else or even offer to comp us the dessert. I love a good beer bar, but not when I have to wait that long for anything. The whole night was a comedy of missteps on the part of the staff...

Went here with my family - just happened to be one of those rare occasions that none of us had plans so we went for everyday dining. Service was great, we sat outside and played bocce ball. Had a very good burger as well. Made for a fun night with my family.

Everyone enjoyed their food and would go back. Limited menu but lots of beer choices. Server was hard to find at times. One person ordered salad but had to ask for it as it was supposed to come before meal. Meal came 3 minutes later.

We arrived well ahead of our reservation, expecting to have to wait since there were 6 of us and it was very busy. They sat us almost immediately on the patio, as requested. This patio is incredible! Such a nice outdoor space and the fire table is very neat. We got 3-4 4 appetizers, all of which were delicious, and our burgers were incredible also. Our server seemed busy but was still present and provided good service. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I were just hungry so I used open table to find a new place. The menu was okay but it was a sports bar. Nothing wrong I’m just not into sports. My food was good it was my husband who had the issue. He ordered firecracker chicken egg rolls. They were so bad tasting we were disappointed. They had too many non complimentary flavors in them. Like south western spice with vinegar and pepper mixed in. They tasted so bad they should take them off the menu.
