I ordered the oven baked dry rub wings and they were awful! The skin on the chicken was soggy, greasy, and nasty. Just looking at them was unappetizing. I'm surprised that the cook/server thought it was ok to serve them like that. The first time...More

Great food and beer specials daily. Great place to watch the Thursday night football game. Look like a really cool place to be in the summer as they have sand volleyball courts outside the bar.

Food is so so. Never have been blown away by a meal but it's never bad. The weekend Build your own bloodies is awesome with a giant selection!

We went out to dinner and I had very good pear salad with chicken. Also the walleye special was good. But the popcorn with beer was excellent.

Great for large groups of picky eaters. Menu is giant and has anything you could want. Huge beer menu too. Location definitely could be better, but affords volleyball courts and a good view. Atmosphere is essentially a sports bar.

Had gotten a recommendation from the hotel manager and was far from disappointed. Thls pub was hosting a lovely formal wedding inches away from a loud boisterous bar with a lot of UM fans cheering and singing for the Gophers football game. I was very...More

It was clear that we got there at the end of a very busy happy hour. The servers were hustling but never missed a beat to provide us with excellent customer service. Loved the popcorn while we waited for our entree. Even though it's more...More
