    Good burgers and sides but that’s about all they had. Lacked a good bar. But burgers were delicious

    Exceptional service, but I wouldn't recommend the parmesan garlic wings. The sauce was just parmesan cheese smothered in garlic sauce. However, their Cowboy burger was too good.

    Had high hopes after reading all of the Trip Advisor reviews, but we were disapppointed. Maybe it was because it was lunch and/or during the holidays. The chili was more like chili out of a can that you'd put on hot dogs. It didn't seem to have fresh ingredients or much flavor. My friend asked for sour cream to try and make it more palatable, but they didn't have any. Not sure I'd go back, but the bourbon sampling looked intriguing if that's your thing. Sweet potato fries and home chips were good.

    We frequent Papa LEW’s often. We enjoy the laid back atmosphere, selection of beers, and quality bar food. Everything is homemade and worth the short wait. Very nice servers, too.

    Enjoyed our early dinner at this establishment. Burgers were exceptional and our a la carte sides of French fries and Mac and cheese were delicious. Draft beer was cold…a must for my husband! Our server was friendly and attentive. Loved the atmosphere here.

    Overall we had a good experience. The food was good, hot, and tasty. The service was ok. We arrived early in the evening, only two tables were sat but the server didn't keep our drinks filled, we had empty glasses while we ate our app. The wings and burgers were very good.

    Cocktails are watered down so don't waste your time. They have a nice selection of beers/ales and you can get a flight of locals. Hamburgers were just okay. Wings were amazing though. Lots of meat and great sauces.

    We had the Cowboy burger and wings. The burger was large, juicy, delicious. The wings can be ordered to your liking, with a selection of dry rubs and sauces; very good. There are spirits on the bar wall, decent selection. I would recommend getting beer, local beer. The servers had no idea what a martini is, how. It can be made, or what a twist is. My martini ( up with lemon twist) was awful, really nothing but lemon juice, maybe a splash of vodka. Get a burger or wings with beer!

    Basic cheeseburger did not have much flavor, needed salt or something. Way too many french fries. My friend and I said we would share an order so maybe they just gave us more but it was a serving bowl filled up with fries (easily could have fed 8, not kidding). But the server was so wonderful. I think she said her name was Carson. Quick, friendly, efficient and seemed to be the only person serving that day. In all fairness we did not have the wings, which is their specialty.
