They use Angus beef and you can taste the difference. Burger was cooked perfectly. French dip also good. If you like sweet potatoes, try the tots! Our waitress, Ashley, was Great! Attentive and very sweet.

We ate here our first night in Charleston. We were just looking for a casual place to eat and have a drink. We ordered the beef dip sandwich and fries along with drinks. Our waitress was really nice. Food was okay.

Awesome service, staff is friendly and very helpful. Food was good...bar food. They are huge Chicago fans and games on all the time. They remembered us and turned on the Chicago Blackhawks when we came in. I recommend and would go back.
