Excellent menu options. it's busy and easy to see why. The food is great. The pizza is perfectly cooked in a pizza oven.The entree portions are generous. It's a noisy, casual place. Reservations a good idea.

Pretty good tavern/sports bar food. Convenient and good service. We have been several times and it's a good local go to spot. Indoor or outdoor seating. Village atmosphere is great.

We've enjoyed large and small meals and I especially like the salmon salad and the calimari appetizer is really delicious. We live on the central coast and when visitors come to town we plan a visit to Rooster Creek in the AG Village

I would say nice casual. It can get busy especially on weekend, but honestly I would just call and see what their reservation policy is. Can't hurt.
