This place rocks, I went here last week and I'll tell you I wasn't disappointed. The staff was firing on all cylinders and they were always at are table asking how everything was. The food was delicious and the prices are really fair, especially for quality of food. I had the best beet salad w/ goat cheese, I also added chicken, so so good. You will be happy you chose to come in, can't wait to get back and enjoy some other foods. PS. Make sure you try there awesome bloody Mary's, really good spice mix, Think are waitress said they make it there, I also believe they sell the bottle as well, super delicious : )
I love this place! Amazing food, tons of beer on tap. Great atmosphere to sit and have a few beers and converse. My wife and I drive over an hour just to come here. Everyone definitely needs to check this place out!
