    Cajun hot wings and fried pickle spears. Crunchy, little spicy, sauce is awesome. Ate in the cellar, which is quirky and cool. I gave a 3 on service, but this was unusual. Service is normally much better. Had to keep waiting for someone to check on things, or go to the bar to ask for drinks, ketchup, check. Even after finding someone and asking, seems like they would forget. And it was not very crowded...

    I love this place. The cellar is my favorite. The wings are delicious and so is the shrimp basket. Even the waffle fries are amazing. I highly recommend getting them with cheese and bacon. This place is a whole experience.

    Come all the way from Pittsburgh, because one of the only places that doesnt have freezer burned nasty wings, and they cook them right. Had most of the menu over the years, all good. I wished i lived closer this is a great bar to hang out at as well.

    The food was good, but they nit-pick the prices of everything. The server was kind. Our server asked what sides we wanted, that any of the Appetizers (Munchies) could substitute as a side but there may be an upcharge. So I got the chicken wrap and subbed Pretzel Sticks instead of fries. I asked for a side of ranch and they charged me for 2 small containers of ranch. They charged me full price for the chicken wrap even though I didn't get the fries and full price for the Pretzel sticks that should have been an upcharge as a subbed side. At first she said the manager could do morning about it because they didn't have a button to sub the pretzel sticks. Then I asked for a side of fries to go and the manager eventually agreed to that.

    Excellent food, though I will say that the deep fried mushrooms were salty to me, so maybe avoid if a low-salt diet is needed. The water is very good. Does not taste like city water or softened water. Great atmosphere and service.
