Customer Reviews

  • Jordan Garrity

    Well worth the price. Plastic cups, plastic forks and knives, and paper plates but the food is great and the beer is cold.

  • kmerke Vancouver, Canada

    We just wanted some food and this place was there, glad we went. Our waiter was entertaining and cracked some jokes with us. Their menu though appearing small actually had a lot of choices. I didn't know what to get and last minute ordered chili chee...

  • Joy B Sydney, Australia

    Went alone when staying in SM. Great place. Friendly. Good buffalo wings and fries. Wine was fine too. I had fun and felt welcome....and the locals even explained the finer points of college football to me!
