We combine delicious food with a wide beer selection. Numerous local craft beers served, Sandwiches and Cajun specialties to enjoy. Also offering southern style brunch on Sundays! Bar open as late as midnight depending on crowd. During the NFL season we show all Packer games via Sunday NFL Ticket. Serving special football appetizers on game day. Although we are cheeseheads, we still cheer for the Broncos and broadcast their games as well.
