If you want great food, music and atmosphere this is the spot. Best casual restaurant in town. I usually order fish tacos or whatever the special is that night. Whatever Tommy is cooking is fantastic.

Had a great time. The room was private for about 40 people. Our service was great. He kept everyone's bill accurate and drinks were flowing. Great time, good food, awesome service.

The food was great. They had a great beer selection on tap. There was a live band. The band was a little too loud but played great music.

I've been patronizing the Broad Axe off & on for probably close to 20 years. It's always been a pretty cool bar with average bar food. We ate here this week to try their burger, since it was just crowned "people's choice" for this years...More

After several months of bland food, I was looking for something spicy, but also needed other options for those looking for a more basic fare. A busy friday, but we found a table by the front door, away from the noise center. The wings met...More
