Excellent meats cooked/made in house. Great for large parties. Sausage selection is great. Not cheap and tough to get a table/bar stool but great food.

High prices do not translate into good food. What a disappointment! When our server could not answer questions about the menu, that should given us a clue. Another server constantly spoke so loudly that it was difficult to hear our own conversation. Then our group...More

Response from Thomas M | Reviewed this property |
