My husband and I go to this bar because it's our home town bar. It's not real big but the staff is amazing ad the girls are always going above and beyond. The drinks are the best and the nachos are amazing along with the rhino chips home made and worth the stop. Great for sitting and watching football games. They also have music, it's just a great hometown bar.

Stopped by for a bite while driving from Grand Rapids to Kalamazoo. It was sept so the fall beers were out. I absolutely loved the pumpkin ale! Order the fried pickles as an app and they were great. I had the diablo cheesesteak as an entree and enjoyed it as it had the right amount of spice. My colleague said the Reuben was phenomenal.

Overall great restaurant and convenient to the interstate.
