  • Cool place. Excellent atmosphere and excellent food. I would recommend if you are ever in down town Crystal Lake. The wait is not bas. The beer is good.
  • A staple of Crystal Lake. This place really shines when the weather is nice. Food is good. Drinks are cheap. Service is good as well. Try the cheese balls!
  • Large menu. I've been there 4 or 5 times. I don't live close but it's my favorite place in that town. When I'm in the area, I always stop by. I've never been disappointed with anything I've ordered.
  • Our family met here for dinner one week night, all 11 of us. We went for their burger special, and they did not disappoint! They were delicious. They wait staff was quick, friendly, and accommodating. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for good, decently priced food.
  • Good food, had an issue with a kid falling they gave them a free sundae. Friendly staff it was pretty busy but I'd recommend it
