nice atmosphere nice set up- entertainment during week and weekend, but table service was terrible, we waited over 20 minutes just for menu's. The burger was ok but nothing outstanding for 16 bucks. Over all, a little over priced and not so good service at tables.

Pleasantly surprised by the new chef's inventive menu, this little known place in Carteret offers quite an interesting menu, great and tasty food, superb service and very reasonable prices. I would go back in a heartbeat.

I've gone here almost monthly since it has opened. Their specials are good and their beer selection is also good. The problem is their service and and the lack of any sort of FUN. I would go there early evening - happy hour- for dinner, sometimes there's 8 people there, but most times, there's less than three people [including myself]... More

As a local I've eaten here quite a few times and at one point this was a decent place to get a burger and beer, just not anymore. I've had one too many burnt burgers. I've had enough of the slow and frequently wrong drinks. And worst of all the quality of the ingredients is now near inedible. If you're... More

If you're in the Carteret area then you know there's not a lot of choices for decent places to grub...but the burgers and beer selection here is great. Head upstairs to a nice little sports bar with super friendly staff. I'll be back.

You'll be right at home if you're a dirt bag, druggie or or overall scum bag . Otherwise avoid this place.

Been going there for a few years, I can't believe how far this place has filled, went there on a Sunday night to watch football, besides for waiting 45 for a drink, I listened to the locals yell cracker and whitey at the games while sitting there drinking water and eating the free buffet, all I can say is never...
