Took a chance with the Monday specials, $4.99 pepperoni pizza and $9. Buckets. Added a salad and a appetizer....we were all very happy with our choice. Really great rock music from the 70's was being played overhead. Not too crazy in there at 7:30, so we could enjoy company as well as dinner and drinks.

This place has really good burgers and new menu items pasta is good. Has been redecorated and looks wonderful! What you really wanna try is the underground stuff...dagwood sandwiches chicken ranch dip (yummie ) but the pulled pork pizza is to die for.

This is a fun local establishment where you are pretty much guaranteed to have a good time (unless you're a bone head) with some pretty great people and some good eats..

Jerry, the owner, makes the BEST clam chowder. Food is good here. You can watch all your sports here, while enjoying homemade soup or hot wings. Great prices and a good value for your money.

This place has horrible food and the iced tea is pretty bad as well. The appetizer took about 20 minutes to come out. It was supposed to be seasoned chicken, but it had no seasoning whatsoever. Our dinner came out about 30 minutes after that. My wife ordered the Caribbean salad which came with 5 small pieces of unseasoned chicken... More

We've gone to this location a few times in the past 6 month after choosing not to go here for a couple years after mediocre (at best) food and service. The first couple of times we started to go back we ordered their pizza because of being told how good it was; the pizza & Caesar salad we had with... More

Stopped for lunch, food was so so. Service was good. The 90's called, they want their bar back. Won't go back.

Not a place to take a family or to impress a date. Average bar food at best. It's a place to go watch a game and drink beer with your buddies.

This place can throw down a mean burger. Great seasoning and properly cooked. Still haven't tried anything else off the menu because the burgers are so good. Reasonable beer prices, too.
