Food was average when i last went compared to when I originally went in 1999. Funky place, warm and makes you relax. Nice place to chill out and have a conversation.

The atmosphere is amazing. This is a great place to stop for a drink or two. They have a nice list of local micro brews. They also do a really good job on nachos.
