Just visiting the area for one night and had to try this place. Lived up to our expectations. Fantastic food and service, large portions, great beer and wine. 30 minute wait for a table was definitely worth it!

I like the food here a lot. I like the beer too. Several vegetarian options, although I was disappointed in them not having any more black bean burgers. The “tree hugger” was a little bland. The onion rings were amazing though. I liked their blonde...More

What a fun place this is. It was slightly crowded as there are not many choices in town and this restaurant is within walking distance of three hotels. There was an extensive menu with specials every night we were there on Fish and Chips night....More
