I had a flight of beers and a large bacon cheddar burger. Everything was good, my only complaint was the burger was smaller than what I would call a large burger. Remember the fries are extra.More

Stopped for lunch and a few drinks. Fun locale. Enjoyed a brisket grilled cheese and awesome onion rings. I never would have put a brisket with a grilled cheese but it was sooo tasty. Enjoy!!

Although the food was very good, the service could have been a little better. It's worth a trip just for the atmosphere.

I was very happy to see so many choices of draft beer. There were six beers on Nitro which made it hard to choose one. Food was good, atmosphere as described and a fun place to hang out.
