The fort burger was awesome! The bun was homemade and the burger was like a tower when they brought it out! Fish tacos! Great too! And big rig Amber on tap!

Not a lot of selection for vegetarians! We questioned if the carrot soup of the day was vegetarian ( she checked with the kitchen, it wasn't) and then proceeded to tell us the specials (all meat dishes).
