Bonless chicken bits were very good. Can get in a variety of flavored sauces. Garlic parmesan was delicious. Good cheesburger and philly cheese steak. Topped off with onion straws that were just as good. Waiter Steven was very friendly and attentative without being over board.

They have a huge selection of beers on tap. I wonder how our server Damian remembers what they're all like. This is a reasonably priced establishment where you can easily eat for $10 or so. Don't be fooled by the $$$ signs on this page.
