The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world in more ways than imaginable. The safety of our staff and guests has always been and will remain our number one priority. We are so excited to serve our guests and community again, while implementing changes and new procedures to ensure the safety of all. 
  • Constant sanitation of all our areas, especially areas/items guests come into contact with
  • Frequent required hand washing in addition as needed
  • Family style meals, six packs of beer, bottles of wine, and house cocktails available to go

Here’s some recent reviews from our guests featuring our COVID changes and sanitation:

Jonathan W:
“Under the circumstances of Covid-19, I would just like to say that this place did an outstanding job. Everyone was required to wear masks (like everywhere should) and once we were seated we could take them off to eat/drink. All of the staff were wearing a mask as well and couldn’t have been more safe…”

Jeffrey G.
“Covid safe practices!…”

Ellie K.
“Really good, affordable beef steak; the to-go packaging was my idea! Very clean, safe dining experience.”

Christine T.
“Felt very comfortable with all the precautions you have taken due to Covid. Job well done.”
