I took my kids there Sunday Aug 4th on Back to School – Kids Eat Free night. We had Hot Honey Mustard boneless wings, a wedge salad, kids Grilled Cheese and chicken tenders. Everything was good! The dining room is a little loud as it was busy and music from Nirvana, Soundgarden, Counting Crows and other 90’s hits played. Service was good and empty drinks were promptly refilled.
The bar menu features a variety of cocktails from the Jackberry Lemonade and Bloody Mary Cocktails to wine and beer selections. There are a few varieties of Mules and Margaritas to try! Or share a 32oz Uber beer with a friend.
Start your meal with Pig Candy (candied bacon in brown sugar and slow cooked) or Farm Fresh Cheese Curds from Wisconsin. Or go with the traditional or boneless wings in your choice of dry rub or sauce.
