I would have given it a 5 star review but both times I ate there the service wasnt great. I won't go into details but make sure if you plan... More

Nothing extra frilly about this place. Good tavern and restaurant with Old World decor. When possible, get their beef ribs. They're huge and delicious.

I stopped in to get a healthy option for lunch. I settled on the mango chicken wrap with added onion rings instead of french fries. The wrap was very delicious, mango salsa was fresh and the onion rings were very yummy! Waitress originally said they had wheat wraps but no longer have them/carry them. They originally said they would give... More

My husband and I picked up take-out here to take back to our hotel room. He had a Philly Cheesesteak wrap, and I had the garlic-herb chicken with rice. Both were very good, and the price was reasonable.

Sitting down for lunch at this local college bar/restaurant, expectations were few and specific. I expected good wings, a well cooked burger and of course over priced soft drinks. Of course we decided to visit right around the 1st shift change of the day and were helped by the highly skilled bartender and her two server companions. The three of... More
