Peak Serving Times

Our staff is always working hard to serve our customers.  To maintain our quality, all menu items are made to order.  Unfortunately, when the weather is warm, trail traffic is heavy and the Yough is full of boats we can experience longer than normal wait times.  If you are on the clock during our busy times please check with our staff on the approximate wait times.  Not on the clock .... kick back .... have a cold one ..... and enjoy the day!


We are always looking for hardworking, responsible team members with a positive attitude.  If you are interested in applying for a position, stop by for an application.

Positions available are cooks, servers and dishwashers.
