**** (4 stars)
This place is a complete remodel of the Italian place that was here before. Although I miss that place, this is probably a better space for serving three meals a day for the attached hotel. It’s lighter and more open, and looks more like a diner.
There’s a large selection of various burger styles, but you can get pretty much anything you like on them. The patties are the smashed kind, so they’re all cooked all the way through. I had the Ranch Hand, basically a BBQ bacon cheeseburger, and it was very good.
The accompanying fries weren’t very exciting, but a side order of onion rings was nicely done.
Service was friendly. The kitchen was a bit slow, considering they weren’t busy, but we weren’t in a hurry.
