Went for Burgers and a Beer.I found the Burger to be just average and it was actually a bit on the cool side.They have many choices including build your own.Our waiter was friendly enough and attentative.I found the place to be very noisy.Not sure if we will return.

Went here and found the menu with the calorie count... what a surprise I guess they might need to change the menu I found a lot of things well over 1200 cal.. let's just say they need a lighter menu
