Was told this was the place for wings and they were right! Some reviews state service is bad, all I can say of the few times I've been there service was good and friendly.

Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. Was pretty quiet but it took almost 30 min to get our food. We were in the mood for soup (tomato-basil with veggies) instead of fries and it was quite good. Chicken club with bacon and guac was also good. Waitress was apologetic about our wait and gave us the best service she... More

After driving by for years and seeing an article in the paper about a sister restaurant, we decided to stop in on a Saturday morning especially since they were serving breakfast; it looked like a number of regulars were in there, neighborhood people enjoying breakfast, not just people warming a stool without a purpose and knocking back beers on a...

After my son raved about the weekend breakfast, I had to try it. Not sure it was worth a first visit, much less going back again. The food was just okay. The service was slow, but it's because of the understaffing and lack of training.

Stopped for dinner this week and our poor server was unable to answer basic menu questions. Poor thing appeared to have no one to ask for help.

Our server you very helpful and friendly. The food was prepared on site, not FSA or CISCO. We almost didn't go in, but glad we did. Good food at reasonable prices. And they have 'real' beer on tap, not just Buttwiper.

Simply set up on Francis. Quite the mix of people at this establishment. Server was great! Had heard favorable comments about their reuben - glad we tried it - it lived up to all the positive comments. Very reasonably priced pints of beer. Food was prepared quickly

I went out for drinks and dinner with some of my coworkers. I figured we'd have typical bar food, but this was way better than I'd expected. We had Korean wings, crab cakes (I think) and some amazing hot cheese dip with bread. It was all incredible. The main dishes were good too. The fish and chips I had was... More

As some have said, we had driven by many times in the past. We decided to give it a try. My quesadilla was so greasy and full of jalapenos it was basically inedible. The burger was so so. Even the Mac and Jack that I have had many times on tap at other places was flat and un-appealing.
