A very relaxed and cheerful bar. We came here for evening drinks and had a very good time. Spacious enough for a comfortable get-together with friends. Drinks are affordable priced and attentively served by very accommodating and friendly bartenders/food servers. I may not have experienced their buffet, but as an evening bar, they remain a great place to mett up with friends over drinks

Cold PBR, and even though they serve delicious cheeseburgers, they let you bring in Pagliai's pizza or Oasis felafel! Love this place! !

We stopped here for lunch today on our way thru town, after seeing the 4 & 5 star reviews.... and after filtering out the other restaurants we wanted to go to weren't open until the early evening hours. I must have slipped and fell into the Hot Tub Time Machine and went back in time to Archie Bunker's local bar... This place is a dive! I am only giving this place 1 star because the bartender kept busy also cooking our cheeseburgers... The $4.75 cheeseburger comes in a wrapper the size a MCD's dollar menu cheeseburger. I would have submitted a photo but the place was too dark to take one.

I ate my first hamburger/cheeseburger at George's 40 years ago and I still am. Do I need to say more. Great staff in addition to the sandwich.
