Ate with a colleague when we were in town for a conference. We ate on the deck because it was a beautiful evening after a long cold winter. The server was friendly and fun. We had entree salads which were delicious! The "tall" hard cider was a GIANT mug so be prepared. Very enjoyable evening and fun atmosphere that two middle age ladies had fun in and could be comfortable and relaxed alongside families as well as lots of singles.

A great place to have a drink with friends after work or the weekend. The patio is my favorite spot. Food is decent and the drinks are, well drinks. We always have a great time. Staff is always pleasant.

Have been here many times when in town for work as they can always accommodate a group of 6-10. We sat outside on the patio which is nice. Food leaves a little to be desired. It serves a purpose of filling you up but definitely nothing to get excited about. Drinks are fine. I wouldn’t recommend this unless you need a decent place for a group and good bar.

This is a bar/restaurant. The menu is pretty standard, but with a bit more imagination than the usual: walleye wrap, (warm) lobster club. The quality of the food is definitely better than the usual. The beef-tips appetizer with sauces is a crowd pleaser, even people who are usually not fans of bleu cheese. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. Sometimes they have a lunch menu that can be a real money-saver. Outdoor seating in the summer, huge noisy bar area but also a quiet room to the right as you enter. Party room as well, I believe.

This place varies from 3-5 depending on the crowd & staff. Foods always okay to good. Drinks are fine. Bingo is crowded, so we try to avoid that.
