Food was really delicious but I had to wait over 5-10min for my own food after everyone else received their meal. The waiter was friendly and apologetic. I would definitely go back.

This is our go-to place for my work group. Great staff, food is excellent, and a wide selection of beers and drinks. Like anyplace else, it does get busy around the usual lunch/dinner times, but otherwise they are very much on top of things.

This was my first time here and it was great. Customer service was awesome and the food was delicious. I tried the shrimp and crab nachos. I also had the salmon penne pasta???

Great cocktails and food! Our waitress was Kate and she was wonderful. Excellent service, loved dinner on the patio.

A bit slow on the service, but the burger was worth the wait. Plenty of TV's in the joint, so I could see myself enjoying some brews and sports here

Hear me out: Sweet potato fries and tartar sauce. Billy Barooz has the BEST sweet potato fries because they are delicious but also because they're crinkle fries. More surface area for frying is just better. But then I dipped them in the tartar changer!This photo is what's left of the panko-crusted cod sandwich, which was FANTASTIC. It was an actual piece of fish, not a mish mash of fish mush like a fish stick. The veggie condiments were even good with ripe tomatoes and bougie pickle sandwich slices that I'm pretty sure are Claussen kosher dill slices.Our server, Rae, was super nice and remembers my Mom from past visits and her usual order. I definitely recommend BB.

We had about 12 of us gather for lunch. They were very accommodating in making a reservation and having the table set up. The food was fantastic, and the menu had plenty of choices to meet everyone's needs

Food great! Although this is our second attempt to dine in (usually do togo and never an issue) and both times service was horrid. They were busy yes but the actual service and interaction were still horrible. Perhaps it's just my luck though based in everyone else's reviews but waiting 12 minutes (18 the first time we sat in) just to be acknowledged is a bit ridiculous. I'm patient though and was polite. I'll just stick with carry out.


This places is great. Food is awesome, service is always top notch. We got there every chance we got.

On March 18 I purchased 2 Panko Crusted COD Sandwiches for takeout. Upon returning to the hotel the sandwiches were so salty that we could not eat them. I drove back to the restaurant and tried to talk to a manager but one could not be located.I was sent next door where I was told the manager was located but no one there knew anything. I returned the next day and still no manager. I left my name and number with Shantell bur never received a call back. We have had this sandwich many times but did not know what went wrong this time. Very poor customer interaction and no one had any authority to resolve the issue.

Stopped here as we made our way further South. We enjoyed their nachos, a cheeseburger special, turkey burger and a salmon entree. The salmon was paired with a warm kale side which was a surprise, but tasty (think upscale greens). Definitely recommended and would return!

Very nice restaurant bar. Wait staff was very nice and professional. Our dinners were very tasty (fish tacos and a patty melt).

Best Burger SPOT in town I know they have more than burgers and so far they have not disappointed us. Great food, drinks and a wonderful family atmosphere. Such a fantastic and friendly staff and GREAT COOKS!

Matt Harmless

Nice dining area. It was the feel of a sports bar. The food was very good. The portions were a great size. The Nachos (appetizer) was huge.

Zach Oscar

A good quality bar and grille with reasonable prices, this is a great place for breakfast lunch or dinner. A wide variety of food, you can probably find something on the menu everyone in the party can enjoy. Some local beers available in draft. Billy Barooz gets a B.
