After waitress told me about happy hour specials I was charged full price for all the items. I had to point this out to waitress and had to wait an extra 15 min for her to correct bill.

Nice place. Prices are great & the food was good! I wish they had a lil more of an expanded menu but it’s definitely not bad.
My wife tried the smoked ribs & we were very pleased! Tender & the sauce was amazing!

The Apple/pineapple hard cider was great as well! We will definitely be back to visit!

Great spot for any occasion! Date night seekers take note!

Service was very slow, as they were under staff. Manager was slow to react and overwhelmed the staff that he did have.

Love the food but was seated at 7 and had to go find my own server. We weren’t greeted at our table until 7:25. Other than that it was good.

great happy hour prices and fun crowd. It got loud after about 6:30, so good for a young group...maybe not so much for the older crowd.

It was very nice our server wasn’t as attentive as I’m accustomed. I drank all of my water and she never came around to refill. I ended up drinking my hubby’s water. Other than that it was a great, food was awesome!

Came for the Bears game. Great wings, lots of TVs with all the NFL games on, cool vibe, slowish table service but we weren’t in a hurry so it was fine

Location, food and service were great but it was just too loud. We had a 5:45 dinner reservation and the music was at the level it should be in a club. We had to shout in order to have a conversation.

Great experience. Food was great. Just disappointed our waiter forgot the birthday desserts we ordered at the start of the meal. Disappointing for our guest who was celebrating a bday but we could not wait longer as we were heading to an event. Noisy - some of our group commented on this - but expected in my opinion.

Nice experience, food, and service. My wife and I were in town for a few days and we’re going to a comedy show nearby and we’re recommended to Old Town Pour House by Zanie’s.
It was a nice combo.

Lunch time - too loud for a business meeting I would expect loud music during the evening hours, will choose a different location next time.
