Tonight was our first time in. What a great experience! Chloe is an AMAZING, attentive, social, fully engaged bartender and server. We had the loaded potato deviled eggs as a starter, very good. My husband had the ribeye and I had the smothered chicken both with loaded mashed potatoes. Everything was cooked to perfection. You have to try the fried cauliflower as a side! Drink specials were affordable and there were many choices. The atmosphere was fun and inviting and the live music from Johnny Mac was awesome! Excellent first impression! The owners were on-site, friendly and making sure the customers were well taken care of. Can’t wait to return very soon.

Best service I have had anywhere in a lo g time even though they got busy right after we arrived.
