This is a real home town place. Nice menu with some awesome salads. Good service, great beer selection. My only complaint is that the place is small and tables are crammed together. Enjoyed our meal and will definitely be back.

The place is good but small and the lighting a bit dark. I recommend having a reservation. The food was delicious and large, I got two more meals out of my entree
