This is our "go to" place when we have a celebration - kid leaving for Europe, big birthdays (like the big 5-0 or 2-1) with friends, or after a kid's sporting event with other parents. Great beer for the adults. Jukebox (do they still call...More

When all aspects of a visit to a restaurant go well, you know it is well managed. Kyle, our server, was fantastic. His personality really adds to the experience and makes you feel right at home. We bought a 6 pk of "Crop Duster" from...More

stopped by on a Sunday and there was not a lot open in town. We were happy we did. Good local beer, and the pizza and calzones were terrific. Another good reason to go away from I-80 and the fast food chains!

Not a beer fan, but I enjoyed the place nonetheless! Root beer and pizza were very tasty and my husband enjoyed his bread-water as well. Only complaint was that the building itself could use some TLC- some of the booths were missing cushions and not...More
