Comfortable establishment. Service was very good. Say hi to pinky the cat. Cold beer I recommend for a hearty meal. Whiskey Carrots were great with ribs and mashed potatoes. Will visit again.

We have been here twice during the last weeks and while the first visit would have qualified for 4 stars the last visit would have been only a two star so overall I guess 3 stars are accurate. My boyfriend had ordered both times the...More
