Interesting and good food in an old-time bar atmosphere. Acoustics sometimes make it a bit noisy and, like any place on Willy Street, parking is a problem. But it's worth a walk.

Charming restaurant with games to keep you occupied and engaged with your dinner mates. Quinoa salad with steak was good, and my partner enjoyed the walleye. Our server was attentive and polite. I liked the joint and would be back to try other foods if...More

Found this place on a lark. Super good food and excellent service. Prices are very reasonable. Cute decor. Only complaint would be the bathroom could use attention

Nice friendly local neighborhood restaurant with good food. Arrived at six and it was not really busy, but by 7 it was full. Families would come in and get an assortment of board and card games to play while eating. The salmon and wallye was...More

You walk in and expect the place to call your name, alla Cheers. The restuarant is split in two by a wall, which would make live music a bit awkward, but the lunch stop before 3 pm. is the way to go. Unless you want...More

We went there for lunch today for the first time because we saw they had good brunch reviews. Two people had the burgers with garlic cream cheese and garlic potatoes. They both really liked them! They even came with a little greens with a good...More
